在這裡逗留了一個多小時, 裡面的東西相當有趣, 但保存古物的方法有待商榷, 有不少古物都只是用膠袋包著就作出展用途, 令人有點懷疑博物館保存文物的方法應否作出改善, 另外, 在場有不少展覽櫃都是空的, 感覺上有點沉悶 展覽館內有賣紀念品的地方, 明信片和其他物品都值價錢, 但賣的茶葉一般比外面賣的貴, 而且選擇不多, 如果真正想買茶葉的話建議去太平老街會比較好 We stayed here for almost two hours. The things that exhibited in this museum are quite interesting but the way that they kept the items is worth to be discussed. Some items...More

This was a nice way to spend an hour in hot Changsha.Some interesting history on early writing and printing technology. There are also some really cool artistic displays to see. It is a very small museum though.

Not much to see unless you are doing some Chinese reading or writing. The exhibition style was ok. But you might waste your time if you don;t understand chinese
