A huge museum well worth the visit, set in 3 separate buildings is the display of Ghengdu history with lovely walks through the gardens between buildings.

A beautifully laid out site, set in nice green gardens, including a deer park. The two buildings look new. One with the excavation area, partly sealed with glass so you walk over it and get a sense of the digs; the other with the artefacts...More

When this was mentioned in our itinerary, I wasn't sure what to expect. This is a world class archaeological site & museum. And the 5D short movie was a fun surprise.

It was great to see so many fascinating items on display, sometimes I feel like Chinese museums are not very stimulating or have much context for a foreigner: But it was still interesting to see so many recovered relics, discovered so recently in China.
