This museum is the archeological site of the former palace of the king of Nanyue, of 2,000 years ago. What's amazing is that the site has been continuously inhabited for 2,000 years. The layers of artifacts are 5 meters deep, and cover all major eras...More

Not a 'must see' museum, but interesting enough. A bit of a confusing site, in that there are several buildings built on top of each other, with the burial sites and the excavated treasures at the back and on top of the complex. Most of...More

This is actually the tomb of the Nanyue King over 2,000 years ago when the change of dynasty took place in Central China. The general leading the army stayed in the south and eventually grew to declare king himself. The tomb area was not air-conditioned...More

The museum is spread over several floors with some original archeological findings and artefacts on display. Nice rooftop recreated gardens though confusing to find my way back to the main entrance. Very close to the top of Beijing Lu pedestrian street.

The main building holds the exhibition and the burial ground is at the back of the building. Worth a visit to understand the history of Guangzhou.

This place was so quiet we almost had it to ourselves. The displays are fairly static but interesting in themselves as they detail the more ancient history of this location. The sensation of actually entering an archaeological site was exciting. Most details are labelled in...More

This museum is much larger than it appeared from the street, because it includes several buildings and grounds. It is completely free, though you have to go to a window and get a ticket. The first building, which is the one you see from the...More

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.
