This 2006 museum has expanded the 1865 Empress Palace Building.
After paying US$15 for 2 seniors, we were presented with a guide and took the elevator to Level #2. Its 5 rooms focused on Ancient Religions; outstanding exhibits included a 4th C Taxilla Buddah, 5th C 5-faced Indian Linga, 6th C Chinese stele & a 9th C gold/silver Lord from Champa.
Walking up to Level #3, a jewelry foom featured a fascinating collection of gold bridal wear, a Textile room showed a perfect Indian 16th C “Dancing Woman” cotton ceremonial cloth & the Ceramic room had an earthenware Chinese Tower from 225.
The entry Level #1 displayed numerous exquisite 17th C cabinets/bureaus/boxes although its primary focus was the ceramic artifacts from the 9th C 59’ Tang shipwreck discovered 360 miles south of Singapore in 1998.
Nice cafe in this very good museum.
