Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King Tours

star-4.5
26 Reviews
Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King
The Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King houses the contents of the royal tombs of the Nanyue ruler Zhao Mo. The skeletons of Zhao Mo, along with 15 of his courtiers, who were buried alive to serve him in death, and several thousand objects from the empire are on display.
 
The Basics
Visitors to Guangzhou can explore the Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King with a private sightseeing or historical tour that takes in other notable attractions like the Canton Tower, Shamian Island, Chen Clan Academy, and the Guangzhou Museum inside Yuexiu Park.
 
Travelers visiting independently can purchase a basic admission ticket or a combo ticket that includes entrance to the Guangzhou Museum and Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall as well. An audio tour of the museum, available in English, walks you through the history of the Han Dynasty by way of the relics and artifacts once housed in the tomb.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King is a must-visit for any first-time traveler to Guangzhou.
  • Visit with a local guide for added insight into the museum exhibits.
  • Much of the museum space is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
To reach the museum by metro, take Line 2 to Yuexiu Park and leave through Exit E. Numerous public buses stop at nearby Jiefang Beilukou or Yuexiu Gongyuan Stations.
 
When to Get There
The museum is open daily throughout the year. Admission is free on the third Wednesday of each month, as well as the second Saturday in June (National Cultural Heritage Day), but you can expect long lines on these days.
 
Discovery of the Mausoleum
Zhao Mo ruled the southern Chinese kingdom of Nanyue from 137 BC to 122 BC after being sent south by the emperor to establish a new sovereign state. His tomb was discovered in 1983 when a bulldozing crew digging up a basement for a hotel uncovered the ancient mausoleum.
