Nanjing Museum

With literally thousands of years of records, the Nanjing Museum is the place to come to swallow a bite-sized amount of historical information or gorge yourself on the expansive selection. Exhibits in Chinese and English span from neolithic times down to the Republican era. Maps, artwork, even a Han-era jade burial suit are among the exhibits. Travelers agree that the Nanjing Museum gives an appreciable overview to Chinese history, culture and art. Repeat visits always reveal something worthwhile.

Folk Customs Museum (Gan Jia Da Yuan)

This massive compound was originally the estate of a noble family during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The white walls and gray flying eaves of the create an elaborate symmetry that makes this one of the most photographed spots in Nanjing. Each courtyard area of the compound is dedicated to a different time period or different aspect of Chinese life and includes deliciously colorful exhibits of Kunqu and Peking opera costumes, the finery of a traditional wedding and much more. Puppet shows are performed every day at 10:30a and 2:30p.

Zhanyuan Garden

This Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) era garden is one of the most famous Chinese gardens in South China. The elaborate walkways, bridges and halls preserve an opulence distinct to Ming- and Qing-era China. Peaceful pools center in unusual rockeries to be viewed from distinct pavilions. This garden's highlights vary with the seasons, so it is a year-round attraction. However in the fall the unusually bright yellows and oranges of the foliage will stand out in memory and photographs.
