This museum was very interesting to visit - and was enjoyable to to learn more about the Guo empire and learn more about the history of this area. The artefacts were so old and well looked after.

Sanmenxia's Guo State Museum is small, but very good. There are numerous bronzes, weapons, pieces of jade and jewelry, but the main attraction is the chariot burial, with 19 chariots and skeletons of 38 horses. The museum is modern and its artifacts tastefuly presented. The museum is well worth a visit if you are in Sanmenxia.

Thank dgrier
