  • This museum features a very diverse collection of Asian artifacts from different countries and dynasties. And the architecture of the museum is also inspired by the traditional Chinese architecture. The staffs working there are also very friendly. Overall, it is a great place to visit for anyone who is interested in East Asian cultures and civilizations.
  • Great music and dance presentations. Art activity for kids, nice and gift shop has a variety of eclectic pieces. Oh and the ponds have large, colorful fish.
