The impressive exploits of Chinese Muslim seafarer Ming Admiral Cheng Ho (Zheng He) are celebrated by this museum's dioramas, maritime miscellany and enormous giraffe, a model of the rather inconvenient animal gift brought overseas by the adventurer. Cheng Ho's tremendous voyages make for interesting reading, though the level of detail in this multi-floor museum wearies after a while. The museum is a good excuse to wander through a creaky old Chinese mansion, complete with swaying lanterns and mother-of-pearl embossed furnishings.
