This museum complex is located about 55 km from downtown Chengdu and is well worth the trip. This museum contains displays from a civilisation that little is known about. The artifacts were locally discovered and are very impressive and show great artisanship. Not far from the museum you can visit the pits where the artifacts were found. The museum wasn't... More

This museum, situated in a beautiful park, is a must for any travelers to Sichuan. It is about one hour north of Chengdu, but well worth the trip. The masks, statues, and artifacts are truly unique, 3,500 year old remnants of a lost civilization. (And the food was very good too, despite a less than charming restaurant).

I can't say enough positive things about this museum. It's by far one of the best in China, from what I've seen. The collection is exquisite and quite well-labeled in English. The grounds are quite lovely and well-maintained. It's not the easiest to access from Chengdu, but it can be done without grave difficulty. Buses run regularly to Guanghan from... More

This museum complex celebrates an ancient civilization (1500 BC - 700BC) which was only discovered in the 1980's. The museum sprawls in several buildings, one 'underground'. The latest in dramatic construction and display is represented here. The bronzes are some of the very impressive artifacts brilliantly lite in dark surroundings. The displays are awesome (as in awe inspiring). I suspect... More

Probably my favourite museum in China! The dark and gloomy atmosphere inside perfectly matched the greenish-golden bronze masks of this almost forgotten civilization. Discovered only in the 1980s, no historical record in the long dynastical history of China ever mentioned this stunning culture. Their aesthethics and form language seem to come from another galaxy! I just hope the museum preseverses... More

We visited this museum with a tour group from Chengdu. Very impressed that a culture so very different from the Chinese culture existed here. A tour guide was provided for our group who explained the main points of the exhibits to us. The exhibits are organized with detailed information on placards. Overall a very good visit & we plan on... More

Sanxingdui Museum is one of the most extraordinary museums in China. Not only does it boast a large number of amazing exhibits but also very impressively lit and designed galleries, which show the relics to wonderful effect. The first galleries show pottery and jade objects. These are interesting and well-displayed. However, the star here is the bronzes, which are world-class... More

This was the first time I was actually speechless when looking at artifacts in a museum. The Sanxingdui museum is set in a garden and composed of different rooms filled with excavated gold, jade and bronze artifacts from the capital city of the Shu Kingdom (ca. 1200-650 BCE). After the fall of this city, it is hypothesized that some of... More
