I think poster Victoria O. is correct: there has been confusion between the "Haikou Museum" (I'm not certaIn that is the museum's actual name, but in February 2017 the exhibits - all in Chinese only, as I recall - did seem to focus on the city of Haikou) and the Hainan Museum. - Both museums are located in the city...

I think a few people get this museum and Hainan museum confused! This museum is attached/ next to the 'Five official Memorial temple'. There is one floor of exhibits as far as we can tell. Upon entering a friendly worker with no English waved us upstairs. There a few displays containing some genuinely interesting exhibits- I loved seeing the old... More

We visited the Haikou Museum which is free for foreigners, you just need to bring your passport. There are numerous buses that stop nearby so ask your accommodation which bus is the most direct for you. We found the museum to be a typical Chinese museum – a somewhat confusing mix of propaganda and a splash of history but only... More

I had an amazing experience here. The self guided tours are great because they are interactive. China is so full of history and culture.

Newly opened in 2010, this museum's permanent displays feature the history of Hainan island. The 3rd floor has a full scale display of an indigenous Li Minority Village!

This is actually an empty building. All the exhibits are all gone, maybe moved to another new building. Wonder why it is still open to public. Perhaps a good place for shelter from the sweltering Summer heat and good toilet break...

If you are visiting Wugong temple then worth popping in as it is free and next door, we went out the back door of the temple to save walking back round. Nothing in English and no guides. Looks like exhibitions are temporary. There was a calligraphy, art and ceramic hall,each and a 1939-45 hall. Nothing about the history of the... More

Known as Provincial Museum, the taxi ride from Haikou cost only around RM15. It is free entry but we have to collect a ticket. There were at least seven halls with exhibits but it looks like the big building complex is underused and one hall was used as a recruitment centre! There is a short clip of the sun, sea... More
