Chinese Wushu Museum
Chinese Wushu Museum information
Kung fu and bāguàzhǎng (‘eight trigram palm’, an internal martial art) fanatics may want to check this one out, if only for the weapons collection. The three halls here feature a history of Chinese martial arts, various weaponry and an audio-visual exhibit. The museum has collected some 2500 items from 18 Chinese provinces, but only 500 are on display. Call first to make an appointment.
