  • An excellent museum, I think they are adding more English signage as time goes on, in places the explanations are only in Chinese, Still well worth a look if you are a museum fan

  • So impressive. Great items on display and it's FREE! I spent 4 hours here. Bring your passport for admission.
  • In a huge building there was only one good exhibit, so a typically not-so-good Chinese museum. Gotta have your passport on you to enter if you're a foreigner, not really worth the trouble.

  • Very poor museum. A huge building, mostly big open space, with a limited number of exhibits, containing few items, of inconsequential importance or interest.
  • Very nice.
