  • I tried to go to this museum last Monday but I should have checked first as most museums (musea?) are closed Mondays so I went after I visited the Panda Breeding Facility which took less time than hea...  more »
  • extremely interesting collection - covering a wide variety from cultural heritage to arts and craft.  more »
  • What I like most of museums (which no temples or other places of tourist interest) is that or either are free or offer good discounts to students (although only if you are a Chinese student). This in particular offers a wide variety of exhibitions of Chinese culture and especially of Sichuan. The only thing, which is perhaps a little small. Is near others gardens, so it best is visit it a weekend or when there is time to enjoy it fully.

  • 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
