“A small museum with much content”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

It is a place to learn all the things about the Great Wall, not just the section of Jiayuguan but all sections in China.

“Nice visit along with the pass”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

The entry ticket to the Jiayuguan pass includes the museum. If you take the audio guide, it also covers the museum. Good way to get out of the sun too.
We did not listen to the audio guide (which you can return at the entrance of the museum) as we had given up due to the music being too loud. This museum is well designed and instructive. They have a fair amount of english explanation. A must see while there.

“Perfectly formed”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

This is a small but well presented museum. It provides helpful illustrations about rhe wall and some very good artefacts but one of the most appealing elements has to be the stones from the Wei min tombs. These beautiful and simple art works give you a genuine sense of daily life. Go here before going to the tombs

“Great Wall Museum at Jiayuguan, A fabulous Museum don't miss it!”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

Yesterday while visiting the Great Wall I decided to visit the Great Wall Museum as it was recommended to me by a yolunteer staff member.
I was so pleased I did.The Museum is very modern and well presented.The artefacts are so well preserved and are a real treasure trove of Chinese history.Although some of the artefacts are replicas there are many original artefacts from the amazing timeline of China's great history especially the Great Wal eral and it's amazing significance .Photography is permitted in the Museum which is a reat bonus Entry to the Museum is free as it's includedin your 120 CNY Great wall ticket.I hope you like your visit to the Museum as much as I did!

“Interesting”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Interesting for a little while. Takes about 30 minutes to stroll around looking at various pictures of the sections of the wall.
