The museum, which covers an area of 51,000 square meters, houses more than 180,000 collections.

Some of the highlights include the cultural relics excavated from the world-renowned Mawangdui Tombs of the Han Dynasty (202 BCE-220 CE), bronze wares of Shang and Zhou dynasties (about 1600 BCE-256 CE), cultural relics from the Chu regime (896—951) during the period of the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms, pottery and porcelain works from various dynasties, calligraphy works and paintings, and modern cultural relics.

The facility is Hunan’s largest historical and artistic museum.

Information: The museum is free of charge. However, due to renovation work, it will not reopen to the public until June 2015.
