Travelers to Guangzhou looking to gain a deeper understanding of the culture, traditions and people of this southern China city will find what they are looking for at the Guangzhou Museum. This popular landmark is jam-packed with ceramics, bronze work, woodcarvings and precious stones that showcase the best of the Chinese province.
Touring the museum's well-kept halls is an ideal way to spend a rainy afternoon or an unbearably hot day. Audio guides are available for those who want to learn even more about ancient cultures and traditions, and two souvenir shops sell authentic trinkets. The museum's proximity to the main library, parks and IFC make it a convenient stop on any city tour.
The museum is located at 215 Wendming Road in Guangzhou. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9am until 5pm. Visitors can access the museum using the 3 and 5 lines of the metro or the 40, 44, 183, 293, 886 and 886A buses. Admission is free but only 5,000 tickets are issued each day.
