  • Is the ruins of the 6000 years ago. Why the world heritage application does not do? Chinese people can't understand is this valuable? Authenticity of dating? And will 勘gutte. English tourists visit door to door transportation problems did not. Excavated ruins of dwellings and skeletons, fossils and pottery, is a dome-shaped building has been kept. Visited in March are cold what! The chilly, cold weather requires attention. Visitors are mostly seeing is almost empty.

  • I must say that visited the Museum with a group of teenagers and Russian speaking guide. Children are clearly very useful visit and = such a museum. adults, too, really enjoyed it! But caught myself thinking, that the visits to the Museum without a guide would not be interesting, even though some of them near the interactive screens with explanations. If possible, you want to take a guide.

  • Is a subway half-Po, 15 minutes on foot. Be the 65-year-old felt and it was free. 聂 ear entrance, made the Chinese national anthem on the right display. Just 23 years old, drowned in kugenuma coast of Japan also are listed. Lives of the ancients, utensils unearthed displayed on the left. Then on the right contains various surnames of Chinese history. Back to end obsolete relics of the ancients. It is interesting in the 0/6000 ruins dating back far the Jomon period of Japan.

  • Worth visiting if you have already hit up the other big tourist attractions in the area. They have excavated a village from 6000 years ago. Lots of earthen jars used to bury children. The outside activities were all closed when we went (January).
  • Turned out to be quite an interesting and modern museum. The "kids" area is very interesting, and for 20 yuan they can help you make fire (and light a torch) using prehistoric techniques!
  • Remaims of a 6000 year old village. Very well preserved. The museum is excellent especially the hologram animation and the large screen. I wonder how this is made.
  • This is the sight where the Chinese government got there Olympic mascot inspiration from! Also there are 2 new excavation pits and you can see body's slowly emerging out of the ground
  • 陈列的文物数量较少,相对于门票价格来说不怎么划算。如果游览的时间不多,大可放弃这个景点选择其他地方。
