    Museum ticket is 80 Yuan, worth a visit. There are two pavilions: comprehensive and bronze Pavilion. Comprehensive library most of the historical, colorful pottery, explain the micro can be used independent of the public hearing. The bronze vessel Gallery of mainly large bronze, treasures there. In addition to the above there are chicken sacrifices the two museums (non-historic) and tourist restaurants. Disadvantage is the public transport is very difficult, Mobike cycling at the door, I rode back to the urban area, downhill all the way can also be accepted.
