This museum is all from a recent discovery from a farmer 25 years ago. Once is was discovered the bronze and gold items were 2,000, 3,000 and some up to 5,000 years old.
An ancient civilization lived in this area and archaeologists are still working at several sites nearby.
Two buildings house giant size bronze trees, masks and statues. Give yourself 1 1/2 hours to look through the museum.

This museum complex is located about 55 km from downtown Chengdu and is well worth the trip. This museum contains displays from a civilisation that little is known about. The artifacts were locally discovered and are very impressive and show great artisanship. Not far from the museum you can visit the pits where the artifacts were found. The museum wasn't crowded as the foreign tourist season. (me) hasn't started yet. I was taken here by my colleagues after showing them a mask that I had seen in the Chengdu museum - otherwise I would likely never have made the long trip. Enjoy!!

This museum, situated in a beautiful park, is a must for any travelers to Sichuan. It is about one hour north of Chengdu, but well worth the trip. The masks, statues, and artifacts are truly unique, 3,500 year old remnants of a lost civilization. (And the food was very good too, despite a less than charming restaurant).

I can't say enough positive things about this museum. It's by far one of the best in China, from what I've seen. The collection is exquisite and quite well-labeled in English. The grounds are quite lovely and well-maintained. It's not the easiest to access from Chengdu, but it can be done without grave difficulty. Buses run regularly to Guanghan from the Zhaojue Temple Bus Station (near Chengdu Zoo Metro Stop), and then Bus No. 10 runs from the Guanghan bus station right to the museum.

This museum complex celebrates an ancient civilization (1500 BC - 700BC) which was only discovered in the 1980's. The museum sprawls in several buildings, one 'underground'. The latest in dramatic construction and display is represented here.

The bronzes are some of the very impressive artifacts brilliantly lite in dark surroundings. The displays are awesome (as in awe inspiring).

I suspect that many western tourists don't get this far, and that's truly a shame. They have really missed something great.
