A Merlion's Jaunt in Beijing - Part 3

Waking up to a rainy day, Huang Yen decided to visit the National Musuem of China (中国国家博物馆) instead of the Forbidden City. The Museum is actually free for locals and tourists alike, which he thought was pretty awesome.

Huang Yen's a history buff like his mistress. Some of the exquisite bronze wine vessels from the Shang Dynasty were really cute by today's standards.
Yet another four-legged wine vessel from the Western Zhou period, used for special ceremonies.
