  • An authentic museum. The museum has many interesting exhibits in the history of the long years as a cargo-trading port, which is not found in other museums in China. If you want to know the history of China and Europe, this museum will be able to satisfy you. In addition to the history of the sea, there is also a demonstration of the history of the diaspora in the Qing Dynasty, as well as the evidence of the commercial prosperity of the year. Some of the exhibits are related to Hong Kong and Macau. A lot of the exhibits are foreign languages, mainly English, so knowing English can make you feel more interesting. This museum is free of charge and is recommended for at least 4 hours.

  • It gets busy with locals domestic tourists on weekends, so avoid that if you like a peaceful day at the museum. Big dinosaur bones and other animals and intricate wood carving was my favourite. Closes...  more »
  • The contents of the pavilion are very rich, including Guangdong Natural Resources Exhibition hall, Guangdong History and Culture exhibition hall, ceramic exhibition hall, art exhibition, Chaozhou woodcarving Hall, Duanyan exhibition hall, calligraphy and painting exhibition hall, etc. Interestingly enough, the dinosaur exhibition hall is very large, this time with children, children are excited to see dinosaur specimens. Tickets for this exhibition hall are free, only need to use ID card in advance change tickets can go in to visit. One should note that every Monday is closed the museum, don't run empty Oh!

  • I never actually went inside the museum, how ever the architecture really caught my eye. The building is unique design and is very eye catching. Reservations can be made, to avoid queuing, especially during the busy seasons, and the museum is only open Tuesday to Sunday. Monday's the museum is closed. There is also serval other interesting places to see around the area also so its worth a visit.
  • Really great museum with many great items on display. Free entry but passport is required for entry.
  • Good place to learn Guangdong's history
  • Very busy in the summer and over the weekends! But a great place to learn about the history of the city and they have great exhibitions going on and off during the year!
  • It was a nice museum. Mostly in Chinese, so bring a mobile translator. Had a great day.
