This ultramodern museum has an extensive collection illuminating the human and natural history of Guǎngdōng, as well as Cantonese art, literature and architecture. English explanations are unfortunately limited to brief leaflets, but there are plenty of self-evident visual treats for kids, including dinosaur fossils and model whales. Inspired by the Chinese lacquer box, the museum’s appearance is a striking contrast against the curvilinear design of the Guǎngzhōu Opera House further to the west. ID required for entry.

This museum is often referred to simply as Guǎngdōng Museum, dropping the 'New'.
