A beautifully laid out site, set in nice green gardens, including a deer park. The two buildings look new. One with the excavation area, partly sealed with glass so you walk over it and get a sense of the digs; the other with the artefacts...More

This museum has two main buildings, the original site and the display hall. The exhibit features some really impressive art pieces that were made over 3000 years ago. It's definitely worth hiring a guide to hear about the stories of the discovery of the site,...More

The site is modern and the English explanations are good enough. You have a good idea about the early inhabitants of that region. The highlight of the visit is the eternal fire ring, made of gold with an intricate pattern.

It was great to see so many fascinating items on display, sometimes I feel like Chinese museums are not very stimulating or have much context for a foreigner: But it was still interesting to see so many recovered relics, discovered so recently in China.
