This museum is perplexingly huge – just to get inside we had to walk up several flights of stairs and around the outside, a route that took several minutes to walk. Inside however, it seemed mostly empty space – with large empty hallways and stairwells.
That weird emptiness aside, there was certainly a lot of interesting exhibitions inside – as you'd expect for a province with such a rich history, where Chinese civilisation was thought to originate from. I particularly enjoyed the selection of ancient Chinese pottery and metal work, Buddhism and shadow puppetry.
As with all other provincial museums, entry is free but your passport is required for identification.
