Luoyang - Ancient Tomb Museum

Henan - Kaifeng - Luoyang - Zhengzhou

The museum is located on Mang Hill (where an ancient city, Mang Village was located) in the northern suburb of Luoyang. In China's long history, 13 dynasties had their capital established in Luoyang. Many imperial burial tombs were built in the city, especially near the Mang Hill. Tombs excavated here proved to be the imperial burial sites of Eastern Han emperors and the emperors of the Western Jin and Northern Wei dynasties.

In 1984, the government built a museum at the site which was opened to tourists in 1987. Covering 8.6 hectares, the museum has 2 parts. The western part houses the exhibition halls in which excavated artifacts and relics are displayed. The eastern part is the tomb site of the Northern Wei emperors.
