  • From the entrance left ruins Museum in independent right, seems to change exhibits at each time point. And excavation site was established in the building in the back you can see the burial of some of the show that was on display.

  • Parking of ancient man was discovered accidentally as well as terracotta army. This is a village that existed here 6 thousand years ago. Were found 3 individual sectors-residential, industrial and Mogilny. Found the remains of houses and buildings, furnaces for manufacture glijanoj and burial of adults. Children were buried in a special funeral urns and leave these urns at the threshold of the House. It was Matriarhal'naja village, women were responsible for making pottery, catered to the family, while men fished.

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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
  • 不错,就是跟团太匆忙了
  • 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。
