There are 4 flights of stairs to walk to access this museum! We did not see that there was any other way in. However, the exhibits of pottery, bronzes, chariots, and burials were well-worth it! Access to the lower floors of the museum where the chariots and burials are exhibited is by sloping ramp. It was somewhat sad to see that previous visitors had thrown money down into the graves, but that appears to be rather common in China.
Although the English sub-titles are sparse, as is usual in Chinese museums "off the beaten track," English-speaking guides are available for a small fee.
The large wall maps permit one to see the political make-up of the early dukedoms in this area of China. Outside the museum is a field where there are additional, unexcavated graves.
If your surname is Guo or are over 70 years of age, admission is free.
I'd highly recommend visiting this museum for a clear understanding of the development of early China and for what drove early nobles to make alliances.
