Nanyang Stone-carved Art Museum in Han Dynasty is a 3A-Grade scenic spot with free public admission. As China's earliest and largest museum for Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD) stone portraits, it has a vast collection of some 2,500 pieces on display in its 2,400-square-meter exhibition area.
The stone portraits, which cover a huge range of themes from daily life to architecture, history, social life, astronomy and mythology, are of great value to the studying of Han Dynasty history. In 2008, the museum was designated as a National First-class Museum by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage.
