  • I was extremely impressed by this museum. My relatives offered to take me here on the way home from another attraction, and I had no idea what we were going to see. The only problem was we got here about an hour before closing, so I was not able to even see a fraction of the displays. If you like historical Chinese artifacts, particularly pottery, then visit this place if you have a chance.
