Located near DuFu Cottage, the museum has a number of nice exhibit spread over three floors. Not just a history museum, but also a cultural museum. If you like strolling through museums, this is worth a visit but I personally preferred the Chengdu Museum.

Nice place with three-floors. Each of the place has it's own theme. The air condition was just nice to us, because the outdoor was like burning. We spent more than two hours there. Worth to visit here and learned history.

Due to the vacation period of May 1, it was very crowdy in the museum. Not easy to look after the artifacts.
