Sichuan University Museum (Sichuan Daxue Bowuguan)
Ranked #80 of 349 things to do in Chengdu
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 July 2015

Given the full admission fee of 30元 at the time I visited, I expected more from this museum. There are some interesting artefacts, well presented, and with some English explanations, but there's not enough to detain you more than about an hour. It can though boast well-maintained and fragrant toilet facilities.

I stumbled upon Sichuan University Museum by chance on one of my morning walks from the hotel. Since it was on my original Chengdu travel itinerary, I popped in after paying a minimal entrance fee.
Although this is a school museum with very commendable artifacts on display, such as a full-size horse-drawn carriage and many period dresses, I thought it lacked a bit of polish with regards to the variety of exhibits and most definitely the quantity. I am no ancient Chinese history expert, but felt there should have been more explanation of what were presented.
The building's exterior is unremarkable and resembled, well, a school classroom building. I did, however, like some of the soft, yellow lighting that it uses to create a nice ambience.
The museum is more of a place of learning than a true tourist destination, which is what most museums should be. You can give it a miss but can spend a good hour here if you have the time.
