Small interesting, specialized museum in beautiful setting

One wing deals with artifacts from excavated local tombs, including a 2000 yr old perfectly preserved male body. Another wing deals with weavings and some lost skills & techniques.

Beautiful interconnected buildings with a center water feature make this a wonderful place to visit. The historic relics contained within the museum's walls only add to the intrigue. I especially enjoyed viewing Mr. Sui, the museum's very well preserved mummy. The mummy's well preserved guts are strikingly positioned next to the mummy's body. It is all a little gruesome in...

Jingzhou Museum is an interesting museum that has more than 120000 ancient Chinese historical relics dating back to the Han dynasty. It has potteries, bronze items, and silk items. The most interesting exhibit is the well preserved male body, purported to be 2000 years old. All the internal organs are well preserved as well, and the whole body and organs... More

This small museum contains a really good collection of old bronzes and pottery, showing how advanced the Chinese culture was at a very early period. Worth a visit

I wouldn't go out of my way for this, but the 2000 year old, well preserved corpse is something to see! The rest is okay. Don't go out of your way.

This complex of museums doesn't have a whole lot to offer, but will pass an hour or so in Jingzhou. It's moderately air conditioned, which helps a little in the miserable summer heat. The main building was only half open in August 2016 and the focus is on bronze work. Behind the main building is the art centre, of which... More

The ceramic figures at the Jingzhou Museum are wonderful and the molds for these figures too. Pieces of ancient silk and also a few pieces of clothing are very well displayed. The amazing thing is the over 2000 year old mummy, a pink body that can be seen by looking down into a rectangular pit - looks like floating in... More

Jingzhou was our last port on our 5 day, 4 night Yangtze River cruise. After we disembarked, our bus drove through the town directly to the museum . I really didn’t know what we expected to see and I thought just another museum showing artifacts. Our guide led us past 2 wooden coffins and then we walked upstairs to the... More

The museum is housed in traditionally styled buildings surrounding a large pond. There are many types of exhibit from textiles to a well preserved mummy. The souvenirs are of good quality, and of types we didn’t see elsewhere, so a good place to pick up a momento.
