We visited the museum as part of our tour of China, we were allowed 2 hours here and quite frankly it was to long, You could easily see the contents of this small museum in an hour. The highlight is a preserved mummy from the...More

This museum is quite small, but worth the trip. A mummy is there from the Han Dynasty. Found completely intact, 32 teeth, supple skin, flexible joints. Lacquer ware from the same tomb area. Beautiful silk preserved with recreated pieces to show the color and handiwork.

The museum opened parts of the exhibition areas for the tour groups on Sinorama Gold 8 when we docked in Yichang. It was their holiday and a few staff were nice enough to be there for us. We saw the corpse, the silk and embroidery...More

This museum is really good, although it is not as famous as the Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum (or known as Terracotta Army) in Xi'an. The treasures dated earlier than those in Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum. Because most tourists are attracted to Xi'an, Jingzhou...More

The most unusual, if somewhat grisly, exhibit is the well-preserved corpse of a local worthy who died more than 2,000 years ago. The body is displayed in one case, the innards in another. Written records unearthed along with the body indicate the man was a...More

A pleasant collection of art and daily life objects in ceramic,stone and textiles, but the most amazing part was the "wet" mummy, which they claim is still subtle enough to flex its joints. I've never seen another like it. As expected, tour guides in all...More
