The main museum is being renovated, so all you see is a small subset of the artefacts. They are fascinating with excellent English labelling and historical descriptions. What is on display is worth an hour or two. Anyway there's not much else to see in...More

Small museum with very interesting artefacts from archaeological digs in the local area. Good for anyone interested in the history of the area. Great way to fill a few hours.

Museum was under construction while we were there. It is free for visitors. Too much construction around such as museum itself and subway

The Buddha exhibit was gorgeous! The museum offered several make-your-own souvenirs experiences and we screenprinted a bag. The museum was free and gift shop items were very reasonable. Please consider adding a handicapped WC as some of us cannot use a squat toilet.

Besides the Dehua Pedestrian Street and Erqi Monument Tower, this museum is the next best place to visit in Zhengzhou. Great to know it is free entry, just show your passport to collect the entrance ticket. Opening hours daily 0900 to 1600hr (winter), 0900 to...More
