Arthur M Sackler Museum of Art & Archaeology information
Excellent collection of relics brought together on the campus of Peking University (enter via west gate), although some English captions would be nice given the significance of this collection. Exhibits include the skeleton of the Jīnniúshān Man, thought to be over 250,000 years old, bronze artefacts, jade pieces and a host of other relics from primordial China. Bring your passport for free entry.
Afterwards, make sure to wander the pleasant, historic campus, a great way to tune out from Běijīng’s frantic mayhem.
