For a museum, the exhibition would not be abundant comparing other large museums around the world. The large coffins and the largest chime-bells worth a trip. The bronze ware was also interesting. For construction reason, I did not meet the famous un-rotten sword of Guojian. There was also concert of the chime-bells. It is free and is also near the... More

This museum has enough artifacts to help you understand the local culture - past and present. The facility is very well maintained and clean.

Allow more time at the museum to watch the 30 minutes chime bells performance in the theatre located on the left hand side of the museum. Two shows in the afternoon , 2 pm and 3pm. It cost 30rmb for the show.

The museum is really huge and you need at least half a day to visit it. The have a nice collection of everything from Hubei province and you get a good impression of the local culture and the history.

I have been to the museum twice and it is a very good place to visit, as there are many historic items and several floors of display. The views from the roof area are great, especially near sunset. The front garden is also well designed. In autumn one could see some beautiful ginkgo trees in the front yard.

I am fascinated by a walk around a museum that leaves a lasting impression on me. Hubei Provincial Museum in Wuhan certainly did that! It taught me more about the friendly nature of Chinese people and their culture. Looking at the incredible bell instrument, a Chinese boy, maybe 12 or 13 years old, decided to describe it and it's capabilities... More

This museum was a last minute addition to our tour, and turned out to be one of the highlights of our 2 week trip through South East China. The Bianzhong (musical instrument made of bells) of Marquis Yi of Zeng is an extraordinary collection of bells dating from 433 BC and is well preserved due to the underwater location of... More

I liked this museum a lot. From ancient times to nowadays- there is a lot to see because museum is huge. And try to go there when they have the bell concert- charming.

Lonely Planet highly recommends a visit to this museum as a highlight of Wuhan. It's a modern looking complex, but in fact, the buildings were created well over years ago. There are 3 main buildings but in August 2016, only the main building has any exhibits, the others are closed. At least half of the main building is also closed... More
