This is in the city area so metro station (the same name as the museum) is about 100m or less from the exit. The south gate is probably the most convenient gate. First building covers the excavation site, and subsequent walking distances to other buildings...More

Great museum bringing you back to the Shu state in China. Very well done museum with rather good English explanations. Definitely worth a visit. The surrounding park is ok for a stroll

I enjoyed the visit, but there were not enough explanations and descriptions in English (or, I think, in Chinese either) to give perspective on the background of items.

I would do this museum if you have nothing else to do. If you're only there for 3 days, I would pass. However, if you're there for a week, I would recommend because it is interesting but this is not the musee du Louvres...
