This little museum is quite unknown but worth a visit. I had organised a tour there and we were offered a guide who explained some of the artifacts. The University campus is justly famous and I recommend a stroll around. There are some eateries just opposite the gate and there are also some parking-places should you drive there.

The Sackler in Beijing has a fine collection of early bronzes and pottery, the captions in english are very good and descriptive. Furthermore, it´s location is very nice in the Peking University campus: you can either walk about 10 minutes from the subway station at the west gate through the on-campus nice park, or you go to the east gate (closer) and walk a few minutes. Another option is to go to the Yuanmingyuan subway stop, which is about a 15 minute walk northeast from the east gate. It´s really worth an hour or two, absolutely so, if you are in the area of the summer palaces, whether new or old, both are rather close. Ít hơn
