The Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King is amongst one of the best museums in China and is also referred to as the Museum of the Southern Yue Royal Mausoleum. The museum houses numerous exhibits from the royal tomb of Zhao Mo - the second ruler of Nanyue who ruled from 137BC to 122 BC. The contents of the tomb were discovered in 1983 and following the discovery, the Museum of the Mausoleum of the Nanyue King was established in 1988 to showcase the 2000 year old history of the area. The massive museum covers an area of over 14,000 square metres and highlight exhibits include a chariot, gold and silver vessels and thousands of burial artefacts. A jade garment made up of jade and silk pieces - the only one of its kind in the world - is yet another popular exhibit.
