Shandong is one of the oldest regions of Chinese civilization so there's plenty to see at the modern Shandong Museum. Although it's to the east of the city center, it's worth a trip to see the historical exhibits. Free entry certainly adds to the allure.

Even if most of the objects didn't have a english translation, you could get an audio guide if you left a deposit. I recommend a visit here if you are in Jinan. Also the visit were free of charge.

We had a great time at this museum. We learned a lot about Jinan and China in general. It was worth the visit just to see the jade ceiling. We had an English Tour Guide who did an amazing job.
