    Don't take your lighter !!
    A good stroll around the museum. Take your passport, and sidestep any que, with free international visitor entry. They took our lighters on entry, and we were told we could get them back when leaving. Not true. There was a box of old random lighters at the gate, but not our good ones anywhere.

    Awesome
    For foreigners with your passport on hand, entry is free! The museum is located on the side of Huacheng Square. The museum is well laid out, having ancient crockery and wood carving sections, prehistoric section, womens fashion history plus much more! Well worth a visit!

The different exhibitions being shown are quite amazing, including the artifacts and how the experience is shown to you. Crazy that it's free for visitors.

A definite recommendation after view the Guangzhou Tower.

I live in Guangzhou for several years, and have been to the Museum several times. A beautiful architecture from outside and abundant exhibitions going on inside all year round. Travelling in Guangzhou is not so difficult except for some language problems until recently the GZ government has had an interpretation hotline(+8620960169), which can provide great service for public affairs and government services. I used several times taking taxi and asking for directions, the interpreters are quite professional.

Maybe it was because I went early when the museum opened at 9:00am, and therefore, was the only one there, but I absolutely loved the exhibition, including the artifacts and layout!

While I only went to see this particular exhibition, I will return to see the rest of the museum, as it is extraordinary and just a well-organized facility with great design and implementation.

I shudder to think what it's like when crowded, but on a Wednesday morning at 9am, it couldn't have been better!

The museum is interesting enough and if you find yourself in Zhujiang New Town (more than likely) you can make a stop here for some shelter from the heat or rain. Best thing about the museum is that it is free!

The museum is very new with large open spaces and currently offers exhibits on the Longmen Grottoes, Chaozhou woodcarvings and duanxi inkstone. There was little English used to describe individual displays and some introductions were only in Chinese.

Our favourite area of the museum is the natural resources area that goes over provincial wildlife, rocks and fauna. This area also seems to promote national parks in Guangdong as there is now a few we want to visit after seeing the pictures.There is a small dinosaur area as well and there is a very entertaining area with theories for extinction riddled with spelling errors.

The GZ Museum is really amazing. Lots of rooms and floors with some excellent exhibits. Really worth a visit if you are in the city.

Just bring your passport and enjoy the day for free at the museum. Lots to see here. My kids love the dinosaur bone exhibit. Great place to learn about some of China and Guangdong's history. Also check the website to find which day they are closed. Went there and it was closed...

This museum has a lot of info about Guangdong Province and is well placed near several metro stops. It is closed on Mondays. Parts were under renovation so there were a couple exhibits closed when I went. Overall, it’s a great museum, though there isn’t much in the gift shop.
