The Hongshan Archaeological Site, in Wuxi, is considered to be the cradle of Wu culture and has a tomb complex from the Spring and Autumn Period (770-256 BC) and Warring States Period (475-221 BC) along the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, which was one of China's Top 10 Archaeological Discoveries of 2004.

Hongshan Archaeological Museum is a National 4A Tourist Attraction, at 200 Feifeng Rd, in the Wuxi New district, for showing Wu and Yue culture along the Yangtze River.

Its collection of relics, unearthed from the Hongshan Tomb Complex, has various types and shapes with regional characteristics, which demonstrate the celadon techniques of the period, as well as miniature jade engraving, the burial system, and the rites and music of the Wu and Yue area during the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period.

Since its opening in April 2008, the museum has gotten a great deal of attention and many tourists from China and abroad come to get a glimpse of the culture and interesting history of China’s famous historical and cultural city of Wuxi.
