Editor's note: With a profound history of over 5,000 years, China is home to a great number of cultural and natural sites, and some of the most significant and spectacular have gained UNESCO World Heritage status. Visiting museums built at these sites is one of the best ways to understand China. In this online feature, a group of 18 heritage site museums are recommended. They cover a wide range of time from the prehistoric period to the early 20th century, boasting precious cultural relices, some unearthed from the sites and others carefully handed down through time. The museums provide evidential interpretations of the sites to help the public visit recent history or more remote times. Check them out one by one to begin your exploration!
