A double-storey museum where you can learn more about the Great Wall of China and the architect. But if you’re not a history junkie like me, you can just go for the clean toilet and the air-condition. Bought a nice magnet in the souvenir shop...More

It is a place to learn all the things about the Great Wall, not just the section of Jiayuguan but all sections in China.

The entry ticket to the Jiayuguan pass includes the museum. If you take the audio guide, it also covers the museum. Good way to get out of the sun too. We did not listen to the audio guide (which you can return at the entrance...More

This is a small but well presented museum. It provides helpful illustrations about rhe wall and some very good artefacts but one of the most appealing elements has to be the stones from the Wei min tombs. These beautiful and simple art works give you...More
