The National Museum of China (NAMOC) is the largest museum in the country, and one of the largest in the world.

It also covers the Chinese Revolution of 1911, as well as the social unrest of 1989.

A history buff’s dream, the museum’s collection is vast, extending to a million items that range from replicas of a Peking man’s bones, to scientific instruments from the 18th and 19th centuries. It also feature many hundreds of decorative artefacts such as porcelain items, bronzes, pottery, lacquerware, textiles, and various artworks.
