Hénán Provincial Museum
Hénán Provincial Museum information
The excellent collection here ranges from the artistry of Shang-dynasty bronzes, oracle bones, relics from the Yīn ruins in Ānyáng, to gorgeous Ming and Qing porcelain and pottery specimens. The dioramas of Song-dynasty Kāifēng and the magnificent, and now obliterated, Tang-dynasty imperial palace at Luòyáng serve to underscore that the bulk of Hénán’s glorious past is at one with Nineveh and Tyre.
