Cheap entrance ticket. I think most of the artefacts on display are not authentic, they look fake. The actual archeological site was interesting. I was the burial ground of the local King. If you have time to spare in GZ, you can visit this place.

I was amazed at how well the site is maintained and displayed. English explanations on the boards as well. The main building sits atop the garden site, another building on parts of the palace, and the third building houses some ancient wells. Fragments of pottery...More

Third time I visited this museum during one of my business trips to Guangzhou; a must see! Great displays, with ample explanation in English, with all kind of relics from the tomb.

A fantastic visit if you're interested in Chinese history ... and who isn't :) As a gardener/garden designer I found that particular part of the visit really good. I enjoyed the museum exhibits and the way the outside areas were laid out to show where...More
