First part of the museum has some history - in English too, second part is the actual tomb and the third and nicest has the treasures they found there, including the exquisite jade burial suit. Take 1,5-2 hours. Nice lay out. 12 RMB

The Museum was really interesting, with the highlight being the mausoleum and jade burial suit. I recommend also visiting the excavation site of the palace just off Beijing Rd, only a 5 minute taxi ride away.
