Pretty much interesting, the tomb and the museum, but could not see everything inside because it closed too early i think, almost everything has an english description.
Not sure why people negative about this museum, Basically it is tomb that wa not looted and only recently discovered. This means the experts have managed to work out quite a lot of detail of the contents and meanings. I thought it was great, in Egypt you see he tombs and they a all empty this one has its contents...

This mausoleum was discovered by chance in 1983 when excavations were done to build on this site. Aside from the museum of findings from the mausoleum, which include a wonderfully restored screen and the jade armor that covered the emperor's bod, there were also two exhibitions of ceramic pillows and "ticklers" that we had never seen before. An audio-guide is... More
This was rated as a must do in Gunagzhou so I did it, but it was pretty average in my opinion, I mean if tombs and mausolems are your thing then sure its a must but for the rest of us who are just looking for something to do in Guangzhow on a quiet day then Id pass and save... More
I'm an archaeology graduate so I'm a bit picky when it comes to reviewing ancient sites. This was my first archaeology experience in China and I enjoyed it but was frustrated and a little disappointed by aspects of this attraction. The museum and associated buildings are very ugly. I also have mobility issues and from a disability standpoint this place... More
Easy to miss, however worth a couple of hours, lots of ancient history although I was disappointed with the tomb, English translations were good easy walk although a few steps in the entrance nice and cool inside and most peaceful be careful in the pottery shop the attendant follows you everywhere.
If you love history or want to learn more about Guangzhou's history then this museum, close to the Yuexiu Park Metro station, is fantastic. It's free but to get your ticket you need your passport. There's lots of great artifacts and recreations as well as the remains of a tomb under the glass pyramid. I think it's one of the... More
It was a cheap priced and interesting museum. Enjoyed the African exhibition because you could shoot bows and arrows in the kiddy section. As for the tomb itself it was empty except for some sprinkles (powered remains) of one of his concubines but most of the stuff that was there was placed inside the very frigid museum. Bring a coat
The museum blends well with the surrounding neigbourhood. You could easily miss the building in this rather residential area. The museum was built on the hill where the 2000 years old mausoleum was unearthed. The display and presentation of the discovery is both high tech and well laid out. Stunning !
This mausoleum, situated in Jie Fang Bei Road in Guangzhou near the Yue Xiu Park is not easy to find. It was discovered in 1983 while digging for new residence buildings. That museum displays the site of king Nan Yue's tomb and all the artifacts excavated at the time of its discovery including a jade shroud sewn with silk thread,... More
