  • A very interesting museum! The performance on the bells was amazing!
  • Loved it. Must see.
  • Stunning collection including Goujian's sword and Zenghouyi's Bianzhong. Would visit again. The number of visitor is limited in 3000 per day.
  • one of the place on must go list if you are interested in history and ancient things
  • Very nice place with many ancient artifacts of the Hubei province's past. Beautiful landscape outside too. Definitely worth the visit, and one of the best stops that Wuhan offers.
