Well presented; beautiful grounds

Worth a visit. It's just on the outskirts of the centre. We went in the morning and finished in time for a late lunch. World class presentation and beautiful grounds.

An accidental finding during digging of a building foundation turned out to be the earliest knowing culture in Chengdu history. Lots of gold, jade, stone and clay artifacts were found. The famous gold plate with the sun and four mystery birds became the city symbol for Chengdu. The designs and craftsmanship of the artifacts had me say WOW to what... More

The museum itself is situated inside of the park's main entrance. You pay 80 RMB (unless you're a student) to see the park, the relics building and the exhibition center. Until March 2017 they have an Egyptian exhibition that includes mummies and a page from the book of the dead. Awesome. However, this has nothing to do with Jinsha. I... More

It is one of the best museum I have visited. Compared with world famous museum like Filed Museum and Met, this museum has its own advantage, i.e., right on the archaeological excavation site. You can see the real items in the ground. The national treasure there is also very amazing, which looks like Morden abstract art. You will be astonished... More

with hundreds of artefacts dug up from an archeological dig on the site this is a must see for all who like ancient history. A whole new civilisation has been discovered here with many bronze masks and other thing to see. Really enjoyed my visit here and recommended if you have the time

The large Jinsha site was on the banks of the Jinsha river which frequently flooded; many elephant tusks were found in a pit giving additional clues as to the environment of the time. The attached museum was marvelous,and we spent around 2 hours there. I'd suggest visiting thew Sanxingdui museum first in order to get the chronology of these Bronze... More

We took Bus 83 from North Railway Station to this Interesting archaeological site and artifacts, dating back to 3000 years to the ancient Shu Kingdom. The displays are well laid out but lighting could be improved as it is quite difficult to read information in the dim light. The Ebony and Bamboo forest makes a pleasant stroll - worth a... More

I had read mixed reviews, but I really enjoyed this place, the dig site was nice to see, but the museum was most interesting. I enjoyed seeing the gold, jade and bronze artifacts. Nice area to walk around the park, only need a few hours here. I took the metro line 2 and got off at Yipintianxia and had a... More

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.
