The China Museum is so big and China history is over 3000 years, from Thang Shang Xia until Ching Dynasty is destroyed by Dr. Sun YatXian. Now The People Republic of China ruled this country. From school time I have heard a lot of China history and I really very interested, so I promised one day I will went back to China to see my "mother home town'. I got it.

This is a truly global museum and well worth the two hours I spent in it. Probably could go back and spend an entire day. 4000 years of Chinese history in about ten rooms. Amazing!

In the eastern part of the Tiananmen Square is the impressive National Museum of China, the most visited (and one of the largest) art museums in the world after the Louvre. Opened in 2003 and completely renovated in 2011, the museum serves as an educational site for the rich history of the country, with a special focus on cultural and artistic exhibitions. Here you can spend many hours, because in each of the 48 exhibition halls of the museum, there is so much to see and wonder.
