  • Luoyang Museum is only a city-level museum, the number of collections naturally can not be compared with Xi ' an Shaanxi museum. However, as a city museum, fully embodies the details of Luoyang and the glorious history of Chinese civilization.

  • A spacious and modern museum with exhibits dating back several thousand years. Lots of Buddhist art as well as traditional Chinese archaeological finds from the area. Strict security on entering. Very clean toilet facilities and a few places to sit, though not much in the way of refreshments.
  • 本館雖為地方性展館,但陶俑,唐三彩收藏頗豊,可惜展館外觀設計不討喜.
  • Outside view: Qi Cardinality and American view, don't head there are a lot of historical Archaeological site, worth a game ... ... Heart insight.

Where to stay in Luoyang

Most international tourists who arrive in Luoyang are much more interested in what lies outside the city, but thankfully its abundant local attractions--natural and man-made--have been largely unspoiled by the addition of hotels, hostels, and inns. The same cannot be said for the city itself, which has covered itself in new buildings, even at times to the detriment of historical sites. Look to the north of the river for the bulk of options, with luxury hotels, backpacker-friendly youth hostels, and ordinary guesthouses to choose from.
