Good museum but a bit of a hastle

Provincial level museum with interesting exhibits but updates and relocation are still in progress. Difficult to get to, outside of downtown.

Over the last year this museum has moved from a downtown location to a site on the southern end of the city. The best of collections have been moved to the new locations, but the others are still in the process of moving. The facility is stunning, if less accessible. The staff was helpful in getting a taxi back to... More

Massive new museum relocated to the new administrative center in the Southern Suburbs. Best way to get there is subway to Exhibition Center then light rail and walk about 500m. Only the first floor is open at the moment with jade, pottery and calligraphy on display. The building itself is worth seeing.

Spent a large part of a day here. It was sort of local art like painting and ceramics, a little history but not real clear on what it wanted to be to me. It is all static displays and nicely done. The plaques are done in Chinese and English so most anyone can enjoy it. This would not be a... More

with its 3 main areas of concentration: Calligraphy, Jade, and Porcelain. I have to say that the jade collection gave me a much better understanding of jade. The museum was free when we presented our passports, but I'm not sure if it's free always for everyone. We have been told that if the word "museum" is in an attraction's name,... More

I was pretty impressed by the Liaoning Provincial Museum. It has three permanent exhibitions (Jade, Porcelain and Scripture) and when I was there it also had three temporary exhibitions. No lighters or sharp objects are allowed. Water is okay. Opening hours for the Liaoning Provincial Museum are 0900-1700 between April to October (last entry at 1600). Between November to March...

Guys. The museum at this address is closed. It apparently has moved and is at least a 1.5 hour SUBWAY ride from old address. I would update the address but I don't speak Chinese. I will try and upload a photo of the sign I took at the old museum!!

OK, the best thing is that it's FREE but you will need to show a photo ID to get a ticket, so bring your passport (you can probably talk them into giving you a ticket with your driver's license also, if you don't have your passport). The exhibits were impressive but not all had English along with the Chinese. What... More
