Classy admission-free museums in Chongqing
CHONGQING(CQNEWS)--Since it is too cold outdoors in winter and too boring at home, a good option is to visit the various museums in Chongqing. Placing yourself in these cultural places, you can gain knowledge as well, so why not do it? Today, the following admission-free museums are recommended for you to have fun in a classy manner.
Chongqing Natural History Museum
Chongqing Natural History Museum is a comprehensive museum of natural science with a collection of over 11,000 pieces, covering eight disciplines: zoology, botany, paleontology, paleoanthropology, palaeolith, geological minerals, petrology and pedology, which features the systematic collection of fossils of various Mesozoic dinosaurs and the diverse vertebrate specimens in West China.
Since opening in 2016, the new museum has become quite popular. There are three floors, each with its own characteristics, but there are relatively more ancient fossils and dinosaur statues on display on the first floor. These quite vividly-made dinosaurs look a little bit scary. With a note with related introduction in it beside each dinosaur statue, you can gain quite much knowledge when reading it whist appreciating the statute.
There are animal specimens on the first floor as well, making it just like a zoo, with “African Savanah”, Antarctic penguins and a series of animals seen or never seen before.
Admission ticket: Free (One ticket for one person at the ticket booth for free, but please take it in person)
Opening hours: 09:00 – 17:00 (entry not allowed from 16:00)
