Well done! Well organized into 5 halls. It was logically laid out so that context was provided as well as the significant artifacts. Highly recommended! I will visit again when possible.

Spent about 2 hrs at the Jinsha Site. Some of the artifacts have been left in situ, while others have been moved to an exhibition center. A good place to visit if you want to see archaeological treasures, but don't have time to visit Sanxingdui...More

This ancient site is huge and the park covers a large area. The museum is set up well and overs great uncovered areas of an ancient settlement. Explains the local area well.

My overall score is three stars: fairly interesting, you won't regret spending some time here. One of the major trends in recent Chinese archaeological research through the last half century is the discovery of a variety of different peoples with unique cultural characteristics who once...More
