Remarkable historic findings from Marquis Yi with his bronze bells and tomb artifacts. Some very impressive bronze, lacquer and jade pieces. The highlight was the wonderful show with the bells and Chinese instruments.

For a museum, the exhibition would not be abundant comparing other large museums around the world. The large coffins and the largest chime-bells worth a trip. The bronze ware was also interesting. For construction reason, I did not meet the famous un-rotten sword of Guojian. There was also concert of the chime-bells. It is free and is also near the... More

Allow more time at the museum to watch the 30 minutes chime bells performance in the theatre located on the left hand side of the museum. Two shows in the afternoon , 2 pm and 3pm. It cost 30rmb for the show.

I have been to the museum twice and it is a very good place to visit, as there are many historic items and several floors of display. The views from the roof area are great, especially near sunset. The front garden is also well designed. In autumn one could see some beautiful ginkgo trees in the front yard.

I am fascinated by a walk around a museum that leaves a lasting impression on me. Hubei Provincial Museum in Wuhan certainly did that! It taught me more about the friendly nature of Chinese people and their culture. Looking at the incredible bell instrument, a Chinese boy, maybe 12 or 13 years old, decided to describe it and it's capabilities... More

This museum was a last minute addition to our tour, and turned out to be one of the highlights of our 2 week trip through South East China. The Bianzhong (musical instrument made of bells) of Marquis Yi of Zeng is an extraordinary collection of bells dating from 433 BC and is well preserved due to the underwater location of... More
