  • Due to lack of time, we have only the Department with historical pictures and pots from the Han-time views. It shall cover a period of 2000 years. Very old and very well-preserved. Many images from the "ordinary life" Also fine it in English there.

  • Our tour guide took us here and it was indeed very interesting to see all the artifacts, but it definitely needs a better English guide. 
  • Not as good as the Chengdu museum near the main square, but worth a visit. Worth seeing if you have time, but if you are short of time go to the main Chengdu museum and give this a miss.

  • Visit this museum many times, the cultural relics are really delicate, it indeed deserved to visit.
  • A trip to this museum is well worth your time. I love both ancient and contemporary Asian art, but you will see 3000 year old art drawn in "perspective" that wasn't even attempted in Europe until 700 years ago. I spent about 4.5 hours wandering around this place and should have spent the entire day. I highly recommend visiting this museum.
  • 张大千馆和青铜器馆很不错~可惜租的讲解器并不好用,需要自己输入文物编号才有讲解,而且内容很晦涩,专业术语太多,普通人很难听懂
  • 藏品丰富,但一部分张大千的书画迁到了成都博物馆新馆去了,遗憾。
  • 每到一个地方都会去博物馆,四川博物馆还不错,正好碰上展览,拍了很多好照片
