This musuem has a large collection of rocks, good show on coal which is important to the region. just most of the items are in chinese with limited english translation. Lots of kids in the daytime that can be annoying.

The only attraction to me is the water project that was completed recently. They have some information on dinosaurs and the types of rocks and minerals found this far too

The henan geological museum is the perfect place to kill 2-3 hrs while visited zhengzhou. It is mainly aimed to kids or teen-agers but it isalso extremely interesting for adults. From dinosaurs to stones the museum offers a great presentation of henan geological resources

The dinosaurs in this museum were excellent!! I spent the majority of my time marveling at the dinosaurs and skipped the rest as most of it is in Chinese. I would highly recommend stopping by this musuem, even if it's just to see the dinosaurs. The museum is free if you bring your passport (or photo ID), so it's a... More

Kids will love the dinosaur exhibits with replicas of the large fossils found in Henan. There are also exhibits of stunning crystal and calcite formations that showcase Nature's art. Upper floors house a mastodon skeleton and exhibits of minerals found and used in the province. Admission is free but passports must be shown to get the ticket.

Thank Leslie H
