Museum of the Nanyue Tomb

Highly recommended
This museum is built on the burial site of King Zhao Mo of the Yue dynasty, who ruled in the 2C BC. It was the fortuitous discovery in 1983 of the king's incredible tomb which led to the creation of this museum. The king was buried with his servants and his wives, all magnificently prepared for the afterlife. Hundreds of fascinating objects were discovered in the tomb, including weapons, gold and silver plate, the royal seal (in gold), and jade amulets, all of which are exhibited here in a striking evocation of the monarch and his dynasty.
