  • Under HSR, went straight to the Museum, even to go to the Museum subscribed to the nearest restaurant. The building itself is a wealth, temperament similar to Bo. Its permanent exhibition information and objects of great value, one morning and afternoon periods of an obligation to explain. Three exhibition halls, is of the essence since the spring and autumn and the warring States period, Hebei province, people here to explore and create.

  • A Huge Museum with many Rooms. Well laid out and gives a good understanding of Chinese Culture.. One really needs a lot of time and Interest to get full value. Nice for a Rainy Day  more »
  • The first museum seen in the recent Chinese trip was this Museum of Hebei province. Divided between a part of ancient building, overlooking the piazza, and part of modern building at the back of the Museum in the area that constitutes the City Cultural Center. This way, in fact, there's a Library (the provincial library) and the University District. The Museum has a large collection of archaeological excavations that took place in Hebei province (which is in the northern region). The findings resulting from the excavations are well told by information panels with captions in English. With a decent bookshop where you can also buy souvenirs as well as reproductions of works on display.
