Attraction details
Reviewed 27 December 2017 via mobile

This museum showcase precious Chinese relics from the Paleolithic era to the spring autumn period to Han Dynasty. It’s a must for ancient Chinese history buffs. Some of the must see highlights in the museum are the lacquer ware, ancient weapons, ancient musical instruments, brocades and silk with very high levels of artistry and a male and female body. The male body was believe to be from the Western Han Dynasty. You will need to buy an entrance ticket costs RMB10 to view the female body.

The visit to the Jingzhou Museum was surprisingly interesting and educational. Their collection of cultural and archeological relics was quite impressive. Coffins and burial objects unearthed from excavated tombs were on display. Particularly unique and amazing was the well-preserved "flessy" mummy of a high official from over 2000 years ago. According to data within his tomb, the exact year of his funeral was 167 BC...incredible! Many of the other artifacts on display from the tombs were fantastic. Some of the silk fabrics recovered were as bright and colorful as if they had been created yesterday. This museum was one of the highlights of our Asian tour.

From the 2000 year old mummy, to craft and everyday items Jingzhou Museum had so much to see. There are great photo opportunities and the chance to learn a lot about the local history. We loved every minute of our time there and would definitely go back and spend more time.
