Overview

Archaeological digs at the site of the ancient Yan Kingdom continued for more than two decades since the 1960s. The exhibition halls at this museum display the findings: ovens, goblets, bronze ware, and articles made of pottery, jade or stone. Much is still unclear regarding the history of the Yan Kingdom, one of the few kingdoms in North China. Visitors with archaeological interests are allowed to visit the excavation site at the museum. A group of tombs for aristocrats and a tomb for the burial of wagons, horses and slaves can be seen on the original site.
