What people are saying:

A museum worth visiting. 5 yuan tickets are not expensive, and parking is free. A good place to learn about Zisha pottery. The museum has many local cultural relics unearthed in Yixing, as well as exquisite purple clay pots by modern ceramic masters. Learn about the stories of Gu Jingzhou and Han Meilin. The cultural relics museum itself is a niche place. There are some local artists’ studios in the museum courtyard. Go to a shop to chat with them. You can also buy a beginner's purple sand for a deeper understanding of it. In a few years I will come to Yixing again to find a small purple clay pot. Even the trash box in front of the main hall is interestingly made of ceramics, which is also very old. I went to Yixing for a two-day trip on weekends and spent two hours visiting the museum. It is very interesting. Those who like museum culture should not miss it.
