This is the largest provincial museum in southwest
China with more than 150,000 items telling the story of Sichuan.
Exhibits include the skull of Ziyang Man from 30,000BC. Displays
of tiled murals and frescoes taken from tombs dating back to the
Han empire (206BC-220AD) depict in detail a range of daily activities.
A 19th century loom, fabric and embroidery exhibition
illustrate the role that silk and brocade have played in the area’s
history. Other collections relate to the ethnic minorities of Sichuan
and the history of the Communist Party.
