Wei and I at the entrance of the museum

Wei, Li and another girl we met during Spring Festival teamed up to hit the history books, modern day style. Basically it meant going to Hubei Museum. I am not a big fan of museums normally, I do find them rather repetative and such, but China has such a vast and rich past that I was actually more concerned if we had enough time to see it all rather than worry about boredom.

We didn't have enough time to see it all, but for what we did see I will never regret.

There were military sections where full suits of armour were on display, weapons, chariots etc. There were row after row of script written on bamboo back in days only movies can portray. Pottery, cuttlery, chopsticks lined shelf after shelf in a display of the year they once dominated for design and ancient pieces of housing were carefully placed to rebuild a slight image of what someone once lived in so long ago.

It was priceless. It was almost as good as or even better than when I would see about Egypt and mummies, something I hold a huge interest in. It was rich in culture, the background music fit each section, the design, set-up and supporting picture and translated text were all well done.

Anyways, I don't think my words could describe it accurately, so I'll let the picture viewing commense!

Li, my cousin took more pictures than I, so I will try and get his before I leave China.
