This place was so quiet we almost had it to ourselves. The displays are fairly static but interesting in themselves as they detail the more ancient history of this location. The sensation of actually entering an archaeological site was exciting. Most details are labelled in...More

Cheap entrance ticket. I think most of the artefacts on display are not authentic, they look fake. The actual archeological site was interesting. I was the burial ground of the local King. If you have time to spare in GZ, you can visit this place.

A lovely side-trip from the hectic Beijing Lu shopping street. This ancient imperial garden has been carefully excavated; you can see quite clearly the wells, the pathway of the artificial stream, and even the little ramps built for turtles.Very good signs carefully explain all your...More
