Beautiful interconnected buildings with a center water feature make this a wonderful place to visit. The historic relics contained within the museum's walls only add to the intrigue. I especially enjoyed viewing Mr. Sui, the museum's very well preserved mummy. The mummy's well preserved guts are strikingly positioned next to the mummy's body. It is all a little gruesome in a good sort of way.

Jingzhou Museum is an interesting museum that has more than 120000 ancient Chinese historical relics dating back to the Han dynasty. It has potteries, bronze items, and silk items. The most interesting exhibit is the well preserved male body, purported to be 2000 years old. All the internal organs are well preserved as well, and the whole body and organs are encased in a glass case. It is believed that the unusual state of preservation was due to the deep burial location and well sealed coffin. The coffin also has about 100 litres of mercury which prevented the body decay. Not a must see attraction, but worth about one hour time of stay.

One wing deals with artifacts from excavated local tombs, including a 2000 yr old perfectly preserved male body. Another wing deals with weavings and some lost skills & techniques.

This small museum contains a really good collection of old bronzes and pottery, showing how advanced the Chinese culture was at a very early period. Worth a visit
