  • Good piece of defining history and coupled with a local museum- tranquil atmosphere a good trip. Painful to get there from GZ though. Best to get a yellow taxi or took took from the train station/bus ...  more »
  • For the past few years, this flick unprecedented sense of meaning, especially in the Chinese, although the book has, but actually a more complete history of the trip is also a very good choice!!!!! The weather is a bit boring heat stroke.

  • Very informative and pleasantly surprised that there is english translation in the museum. Exhibits are plentiful and we spent 3 hours just walking and seeing everything. A great place for a historic visit if you are in the area.
  • Great place to visit for a few hours and free entry if you show your passport. Learned so much in such a short time. This is a beautifully and thoughtfully presented history. Great to see British cannons lying next to their Chinese counterparts. Highly recommended.
  • A dedicated museum to record and present the ordeal of late Qing Dynasty by the western super powers and the rise and consequences of the Opium War in late 19th century, leading to almost a whole century of colonization in most of the coastal areas of China - a must for those who try to understand the recent history
  • 2nd best museum I've been to in china after the Chinese museum of finance in Tainjin, and possibly the Propganda poster museum in Shanghai. Please spend 15 minutes on Wikipedia before coming, many exhibits are only partially in English.
  • A small museum to commemorate the Opium War. Lin Zexu, 林則徐, the man who stood up to the British and started the Opium War by burning the British opium in the pits that are still there today in there garden area. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
