I had been tipped by a friend to see the Jinsha museum, and it was worth the one hour drive from the city. I had never heard of the Shu people and it was a great learning experience for me. The grounds are huge and well laid out. Great landscaping and very well maintained grounds. Surprisingly not a lot of... More

It is a bit far from the center, while worth the trip if you have a half day at weekends. Few people, big trees, large parks, and inspiring unique exhibitions. Good for both adults and children.

This exhibit demonstrates some very ancient history of the region. It reveals some interesting archeological finds in the area, particularly around sacrifice and ecology.

I enjoyed the museum and walking the lovely, spacious grounds. The museum has a British Museum feel (on a smaller scale) and quite nicely done. The exhibits are a bit uneven, but then what museum doesn't have mixed reviews in that vein? The dig site is huge, but not terribly interesting after a few looks into the holes. The collection...

This is an incredible Museum in 2 parts- the site where the incredible relics were found and a stunning display of the relics in a museum style attraction. Unlike the website says though- it is much further than 300m from the Train station. More like 1km to get to the main entrance, but definitely go! It is worth the walk,... More

Extremely expensive with no value. Results of local, unimportant excavations. A big hall build over a discontinued dig site where one can see dust gray rectangular holes in dust gray surroundings. Then a museum where there are some teeth, bones and cracked pottery. Ask what is vaguely interesting is models that represent common knowledge, nothing location specific. The biggest attraction...

The museum is very nicely designed. And it is very interesting to see over 3000 years ago, China already has such advanced civilizations. I knew the dynasty from Chinese history but didn't know it was so advance. It may not be as astonishing and as massive as Xiamen terra-cotta. But this is more than 3000 years ago vs. Xiamen about...

The guided tour was very informative and well paced. It explained the vast history of the Chengdu area with excellent descriptions of the many artifacts. Worth the visit by any one.

There are so many museum in chengdu and this is so far one of my favorite. You can easily spend few hours inside and the tour guide is well organized.

We visited this place independently whilst staying nearby after a business trip. It's easy to get to by metro & has the archaeological dig revealed indoors in a large climate controlled room (size of a hangar) & in parts of the adjacent museum via glass floors. Range of relics on show & a petrified forest in the surrounding park. Good... More
