Museum of Guangxi Autonomous Region

First built in 1934 in Guilin but later moved to Nanning in 1954 and renovated in 1978, the Museum of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region covers a construction area of 15,000 square meters, of which 7,000 square meters is for exhibition.

The Museum boasts a collection of more than 50,000 cultural relics, including 400 bronze drums, the largest collection in the nation, and over 50,000 ancient books. Of the 76 first-grade relics in the Museum, the most precious are a bronze You (small-mouthed wine vessel) of the Shang period (17th century-11th century BC) and a phoenix lamp of the Western Han Dynasty (206BC-8AD).

The Museum has two basic displays, namely, the Display of Guangxi Historical Relics, and the Display of Guangxi Revolutionary Relics. The Display of Guangxi Historical Relics exhibits heritage from 50,000 years ago, such as the Liujiang Man's cobra bone, to the Opium War in 1840; while the Display of Guangxi Revolutionary Relics exhibits relics and documents of every revolutionary period in the early 1920s. The Museum also has three displays on special topics, namely, the Display of Guangxi Folklore, the Display of Guangxi Ancient Bronze Drums and the Display of Relics about the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom Uprising (1850-1864).

The Museum has also held some temporary exhibitions such as the Exhibition of New Excavations and Ancient Corpses in Guangxi, the Exhibition of Cultural Relics Donated by Li Jishen, and the Exhibition of Relics Left by Qing (1644-1911) Emperors and Empresses, etc.
