Large, impressive looking museum located in the (largely abandoned ghost town) on Dishui Lake. It charts China's maritime history, from the earliest sampans to the latest cargo liners. The central atrium houses an entire junk (a type of multi-purpose sailing ship with a distinct sail and rigging) you can walk around on. Tickets are 50rmb for adults with discounts for students, the elderly and children.
