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.

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

In about 200 BC, a Royal Palace existed on the grounds, and subsequent palaces were constructed. Today, the existing remains are part of a museum where the displays, among others, include: - the foundations of a Nanhan Kingdom Palaces 1 and 2, - the foundations...More

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

2 small glass covered sections in the middle of bustling Beijing Lu pedestrian mall give you a glimpse of ancient roads that lie beneath modern Guangzhou, and if you're a history buff, whets your appetite for this amazing museum. Surprisingly, entrance to the museum is...More

The museum downstairs is great - most the signs are in both Chinese and English and there are people who work there who are willing to tell you a bit about it. The guy who talked to me didn't speak very much English, but he...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.
