The museum was a cool respite from the scorching heat and there was plenty to see at the exhibition area. First you visit the site of the original tomb by walking down a flight of stairs into the chambers. After the tomb visit, you get...More

A well-designed new museum. Good displays as well as explanations for backgrounds well worth the admission fee. It was said to provide free video guides but I forgot to look for it.

The museum is composed mainly of three structures – the three-storey comprehensive exhibition hall, the burial site of the Nanyue King and another two-storey exhibition hall behind the tomb. You can safely skip the three floor hall, and go straight to the tomb and the...More

While the tomb and artifacts of this well maintained museum are fascinating, what really impressed me was the pillow collection--hundreds of beautiful, ceramic pillows. Quite a collection!

A fantastic museum. Easy 2 min walk from metro, 12 RMB entrance fee. The tomb and its treasures are 2000 years old and it's just amazing to see how sophisticated the society was. Plenty of English signs with good explanations. Definitely worth the visit.

Such an archaelogical find. Only discovered in 1983 I think. The artifacts displayed are so well presented as are details of what they actually found. You can even go into the burial chambers themselves. The museum is very modern and well maintained. Suitable for any...More
