Fodor's Expert Review Hubei Provincial Museum

Wuhan Museum/Gallery

The 140,000-odd artifacts housed here include pottery and porcelain, weapons, ancient musical instruments, bronze vessels, and porcelain and jade. The museum's historic gems are the bronze chime bells covered in ancient Chinese characters. These were unearthed from the tomb of Yi, who was the king of the Zeng State during ancient China's Warring States Period (475 BC–221 BC). Daily at 11 and 4, visitors can listen to musicians in period clothing play replica chime bells.
