Small museum but the display though not great in quantity but is excellent in quality. The layout is convenient and the garden is surprisingly good during spring.

The museum is only 100m meters away from a subway station so getting there shouldn' t be a problem. The entrance is 70RMB. All sites are within 100 meters of each other and the surrounding park is quite beautiful, so the stroll is quite enjoyable....More
