do visit. The exhibits are generally interesting and reasonably presented. Do be aware the information presented therein is from a Chinese historical viewpoint which is neither precise nor historically accurate. This said, it is their museum and one of the better ones in the Province.

Unfortunately now (Jan 1, 2016) closed for renovation. No information on reopening. However the other attractions at this location are still open and certainly worth visiting

The entrance to the museum is FREE!!! and the grounds are beautifully maintained. I'm surprised that there's no crowd in August 2015. There's a lot to learn .... Guangdong history, Opium War, Hongkong takeover by the British, etc. You'll find English captions on most items....More

Although some of the detail on the written cards around the museum is not always up to scratch, you can't fault this museum. Being a Brit, walking around a museum showing what we did to the area is an eye opener.
