We visited the National Museum of China today as part of our exploration of Chinese culture. It was a fantastic experience to see so many aspects of Chinese culture and history. I think each student had a favorite exhibition; we certainly had a lot to to talk about after we our visit. Of particular note was the exhibition on American Innovation. It highlighted America’s patent laws and the wonderful engineering and scientific applications used in invention. The exhibit was beautifully and thoughtfully presented, and was really a delight to explore.
The building is massive. The interior space soars.
The antiquities collections are filled with great examples.
