Hǎinán Museum

Museum in Haikou

This modern colossus of a building should be your first stop when you arrive in Hǎinán. The displays on ethnic minorities, as well as Hǎinán’s 20th-century history, which included fierce resistance against the Japanese and later Nationalists, are particularly informative (and in English too!). You’ll need your passport to enter. The museum is about 2km southeast of Hǎikǒu Park, along the river. Bus 43 runs here from the Clock Tower bus stop. A taxi will cost around ¥30.
