“Very Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2012

We went as a group, I was not sure where we were going but was amazed at all we saw . We saw the tomb of the king its self and the museum built around it , full of everything they foundin his and his ladies tombs. The tomb of King Nauyne was discovered in 1983 and had not been plundered. It is one of the most important historical sites in China . It amazes me of how advanced socity was way back before the birth of Christ. With beautiful silks and ironwork . Well work a visit .

“Museum worth visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

What I particularly like in this museum are the two video shows that give visitors a very clear picture of a) the actual excavation (b) the locations of the various artifacts that were laid out in the tomb. It is indeed an eye opener to see how they were being laid in a orderly and sequential manner befit for a king's burial. Very well presented.

“One of best in China”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

I LOVE this place- it houses a great tomb you can actually walk into. Also the museum is loaded with all the treasures held within the tomb. My favorite is the Jade burial suit. Wow!Super clean- the restrooms are western. The price is really cheap and its easy to get from subway. I've been to many tombs/museums in China, and this one is one of the best. Not known to westerners-it is truly wonderful to experience this 2000 yr old tomb. The museum also has a great room with many ceramic pillows. You will not be disapointed with this museum. One of the finest attractions in Canton.

“Excellent and worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2011

Very cheap entrance fee (RMB12 per person). Well maintain and very informative. Not as famous as other attraction in China but worth visiting. Very impressive. Nearby MTR station (2mins walk). A little bit confuse with their item descriptions.
