    Inside the exhibition is very rich, do not have special exhibitions on a regular basis, the Republic Museum is very interesting from the negative, greatly reducing the appearance of Nanjing in the Republic, there are souvenirs can be purchased. There is drama in the afternoon every day can go to.

    A beautiful place to look at in order to have a quick glance at rich chinese heritage. Chronological evolution of pottery is also marvelous.Lot of learning for students of history.

    On my list of the best history museums of China. Particularly impressive is its comprehensive and nuanced exhibition on Wu (吳國) history and culture. For those who refuse to believe that Han Chinese are a homogenous people, here displays the most compelling evidence of Han diversity. Another highlight was the re-creation of ROC era Nanjing. The attention to detail (exclusivity of Traditional Chinese) made it a truly immersive experience.

Where to stay in Nanjing

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Nanjing, a modern metropolis long on the radars of domestic and international tourists. Look south of the main railway station, following Central Road, to find the primary districts where visitors stay, with clusters of high-rise hotels--some luxurious and others standard, but all comfortable. A number of smaller boutiques set in formerly residential buildings provide atmospheric, well-maintained, and budget-friendly options. Take a look at the side streets around Central Road for a wealth of hostels and guesthouses.
