The main museum in Jinan has some very interesting artefacts however it is not easy to find and even once in the museum it is difficult to find your way around without a local  who can question the museum guides about where to go.  Many rooms are closed and it is shabby.  However with a local, you can see some very interesting archaeological finds - well worth it.

The "antique" markets are open on weekends.  Imperative that you go with a local who can help with bargaining.  Locals are curious about you, but visitors should feel safe.
