  • Spacious, thoroughly enjoy. You can see the bones of a mammoth. It turned out well also plays a part of the Silk Road.

  • This museum is more interesting than I expected. There is an interesting collection of Silk Road items from excavations. If you have time in Lanzhou, it is for sure worth a visit.  more »
  • The transportation is very convenient and free of charge is very good. There's nothing to be interested in looking at historical artifacts. The exhibits here are Linlang so you can recognize the serious this place and other priceless historical artifacts.

  • The galloping horse is the obvious draw here, other exhibits are worth browsing too.
  • Excellent museum by all means. Must visit._
  • GOOD museum
  • The museum in Gansu province is well stocked ... Although the overall architecture looks really general from the outside, did not imagine the palace level magnificent feeling, very low-key, the collection is very shocking has the Maming Brook Dragon Skeleton (very big very big), the hall also has the only one to open the door to be able to directly touch the dragon leg bone, is said to touch the luck to be very good! There are grottoes like, Silk Road, horse riding on a swallow, copper Ben Ma, and so on, let a person pleasantly surprised, not two or three hours to stroll endless!
