The Turpan Museum is free to get in, it has some excellent exhibits and displays about the history or Turpan including some excellent dinosaur bones and extremely well preserved bodies that look just like they are really old people sleeping. It is a great museum to spend an hour or two exploring.

We spent 2 or so hours in this museum, which covers all sorts of things - history, dinosaurs, modern China. well worth visiting if you're in Turpan although not worth a detour.

This museum is a great way to spend a few hours, particularly in the heat of the day. It is beautifully designed and really well laid out with impressive displays of Turpan memorabilia from the past. A highlight for us was the dinousaur collection

This is a very good museum to visit if you want to get more context to the archaeological like Jiaohe and Gaochang. Also some very well preserved mummies.

This is an excellent museum that will give you an insight into the history of Turpan. The mummies were very interesting to see and there was a lot of information posted about the exhibits in both English and Chinese. This is a must see if you are in Turpan.
