Guangzhou Museum, Guangzhou

(3.7/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
History meets legend at Guangzhou Museum, housed in a historic five-story pagoda. Ming emperor Zhu Liangzu built the tower in 1380 to protect his power as ruler. The building lies in the heart of a park, near the old city wall. Climb the pagoda to discover a different historical period on each floor. The top-floor exhibition shows the influence of Western culture on China, and also provides a scenic view of the city. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Guangzhou holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Guangzhou Museum and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • interesting place. The tower itself is not only a museum but also the observation platform, from where in fine weather, you can see the city. the tower itself has many interesting exhibits well presented the history of the city.
