Well maintained museum

This was an interesting cultural artifact. The museum itself is well laid out, and the staff was generally helpful. The video presentation in one corner was informative.

This museum was more interesting than I anticipated with many artifacts and particularly interesting, archeological sites on display to visitors(you can actually see where the scientists found the remains of the king etc). Lovely for an afternoon.Free entry as far as I can remember.

One of China's major archealogical discoveries, the tomb of Nanyue King Zhao Mo was only discovered in 1983. Another must see. Well preserved and presented. Explanations only in Chinese but the pamphlet is also in English.
