  • Has not lived up to expectations. Spisyvaju at the wrong time of the visit. It was at the end of November. Waited for a lot from the Museum in the province. The center of the city. Modern building. This apparently and catch. Yes, and generally something there. However! The Museum is free (you must show your Passport), is located in the Centre, so welcome! Works with 9 to 4.

  • 这个博物馆是免费开放的,提前在网上用身份证预约,还可以省去现场排队之苦。博物馆分了四层,讲述了岭南历史的变迁,也有很多有趣的历史场景重现,比如赛龙舟,下南洋。博物馆在珠江新城,可以顺路走走附近的景点,比如广州塔,海心沙。 
  • The museums in Shanghai and Beijing were much better. This one was large but scanty on interesting exhibits; I did not see any notable international exhibits.

  • 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.
