This museum is well built and easy to navigate. They have rotating exhibits throughout the year, and do have some English. Entrance is free (last time I went). It's big enough to spend an entire morning or even a day there depending on how much time you spend in the various exhibits.

I went here with a group of students, one of whom knew much history, and so acted as a tour guide, but surprisingly, many things were in English as well as Chinese.

It is a large museum, 4 floors. We only visited the first two floors,but I enjoyed learning about some of the culture and history.

This museum is free for all, just need to show them your identification. Hence, remember to bring your passport along. Good educational visit for families and tourists. Centrally located. You will get to see histories of different era and dynasty. Photo taking is permitted too. Worth checking out this place if you are a history lover and since its free, why not?

Went there on a rainy day. Didn't expect the museum was that new, grand and so much to offer. The history and art are mainly from the Hebei region; the exhibition is just beautiful and the interactive media made the visit and learning fun for the kids. I remember were taking a small test of telling the modern Chinese writing from the old Chinese characters, all my family were intrigued, and in the end a kid in the neighborhood was joining the "competition" too. There is also dinosaur, as well as "experience" space for the "tombs" and ritual dancing in the primitive period. It exceeded my expectations and gave me a new aspect on the regional cultural heritage, so much to offer.

This is a great museum, full of exhibits pre dating to BC. The museum has 4 floors of exhibits, preferably start at the top floor and work downwards as the top shows the prehistoric age and proceeds in age as you go downwards. The museum is new and spacious, it also joins an older building of the museum where an exhibit of the Japanese occupation is shown.
There is no entrance fee but bring along some form of identification. I had a soft copy of my passport in my iPhone and reluctantly the ticketing lady accepted it.
