Amazing corridor of fossils.. Really impressive to see how many they have discovered in this one small area! Great museum as well with huge skeleton displays and fossil eggs. The main exhibit is now covered by a massive shed.. But it looks like there was another open air site on the complex that we didn't get to see We were... More

I found this museum quite fascinating as I had no idea that China harboured so many dinosaur fossils. I visited the museum as an English speaker and I didn't have any trouble gaining entry or understanding the displays, however their placards could benefit greatly from an overhaul by somebody fluent in English. There was a cheesy part to the museum... More

Since 2011 this museum has the largest collection of dinosaur bones, skeletons and footprints in North China. The museum is well maintained with reasonable English detailing its history on display. For example it outlines each excavation and profiles the archaeologist. I recommend you spend at least one hour here - two to three if you have a strong interest in... More

This place is awesome. I constructed my recent trip around hunting for dinosaurs in China. Unfortunately there's not a lot of info out there on how to get to Zhucheng and navigate around Zhucheng. I've reviewed this attraction, and other dinosaur attractions in Zhucheng on my blog : http://upbeatadventures.blogspot.com.au/2015/05/how-to-hunt-for-dinosaurs-in-china.html which I hope will be useful for dinosaur lovers.

The Dinosaur Museum was an amazing attraction which given the chance to see I would recommend. The museum was well laid out and provide descriptions in both Chinese and English. I was there very early in the morning and it seemed that the whole museum was mine to explore.

The place closes early and there is not too much to see at least during winters. It is basically a covered excavation site where you can find a lot of dinosaur extractions including bones piled in heaps.If you are an enthusiast, you may want to check out this place. But its not a place kids would enjoy. No ATM or... More

Whoa. This is Dinosaur Pie. Dinosaurs bones are packed into the earth, one on top of another. There are so many bones here, the excavation site is the main exhibit! A roof has been put overhead and a paved path leads you down into the pit so that you see everything for yourself. Located in Shandong Province, the city's tourism... More
