If you are a fan of Chinese calligraphy and pottery, then this museum is worth a visit. There is no entrance fee and it should take you around an hour to have a look around. Information in English accompanies all exhibits.

Visited the Museum and was most impressed with displays etc. Most had English translations and showed how Hainan Island is what it is today. You need your passport for entry. Well worth the visit.
