The ruins of what is believed to be a sacrificial site from the Shu Kingdom of 3000 years ago were only discovered by chance in 2001. Excavations have revealed much that has intrigued archaeologists and lead them to revise their understanding of this period.

For instance, the sheer number of tusks and other elephant remains has lead them to conclude that these elephants must have been native to the region at that time. The first hall displays the actual excavation site; the second houses a vast collection of relics. The climax comes with a 4D cinematic explanation that will leave you informed as well as highly amused. The Museum is easily reached from Downtown Chengdu so don't miss the opportunity.
