It is a modern museum with a very good design both in and out. We attended the Titanic exhibition which was very interesting and interacting. The setting was quite professional. The main exhibition is free of charge while the special one is not.

Good those interested in Chinese pottery/crafts and history of early China. However little rest stations, minimal seats available for the public. Will get sore feet by the end.
