  • To go to Guangdong Province Museum building from the South side of the Pearl River in Guangzhou Tower went to the "Grand Theatre" in APM mode by mistake, I was out at the Guangzhou library. Could not go because the Museum features buildings from the library entrance is right there, but so strong was raining. I gave up to go unfortunately so is waited for 15 minutes or so stop raining, the rain stops. China many cultural relics were unearthed in the South and is sorry it is expected that admission free of charge.

  • 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.
