The drive takes about 1.5 hours, and visitors can return at the same day. If you only visit the museum and Anren Ancient Town, without a visit to the Jianchuan Museum, this would be the best solution. Second, from Shiyangchang Bus Station in Chengdu and Chadianzi Bus Station, there are shuttle buses to Anren Town. After arriving at Anren Town Bus Station, you can walk or take a taxi to the museum.
