Opium Trade

The story about the Opium trade is our favourite . It tells the story of Britain importing opium from India and trading it for the tea from China. The demand rose from 200 chests in 1729  to 4500 chests of opium by 1799. Unbelievable!

Exhibitions

Huge amount of displays of artifacts and  art regarding various groups that settled in China. There are 12 different galleries.

The section with information regarding the Japanese invasion during World War 1, was very informative. As sad as this history is, definitely worth seeing.

Spending three hours here is more than we anticipated. This is place not to be missed.
