We went to the museum mainly because it was in walking distance from our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised as it was really interesting and well done. A Han dynasty burial tomb was unearthed during the construction of a modern hotel. They redirected construction to...More

If you want to escape the noise and crowds of the city, this museum is a great option. Don’t expect a King Tut-style spectacle. The permanent collection consists of a well laid out display of tomb artifacts and the tomb itself. In early May 2018,...More
