We went here at a day they did not charge entrance fees. Cool! What the museum offered was a lot cooler. There was so much to see! Glad that we went to this place.

Great historical place to visit. Not very big, but trees and architecture are wonderful. There're a lot of interesting stuff in the museums, but no English description. On the weekends there maybe crowds of people (like everywhere in China)

The tomb of this King was first discovered in early 1980s. An interesting place to see the actual site of the burial grounds and the various burial items that accompanied this King.

The biggest and only painted stone chamber tomb of Zhao Mo who was the second king of Nanyue Kingdom. This vast tomb was discovered in 1983 during an excavation for construction of new buildings. Now, it becomes a must see for museum tour in Guangzhou.
