  • 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。
