China: National Museum of China

On Thursday I got two postcards: one from China and one from Italy.

The card from China shows the National Museum of China. The National Museum of China is a museum about Chinese art and history located on Beijing's Tiananmen Square. It was established in 2003 and opened to the public in 2011. The museum is housed in one of the Ten Great Buildings built in 1959 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the People's Republic of China, which earlier housed two other museums which were merged to form this new museum. The National Museum of China is today one of the largest museums in the World, the second-most visited art museum in the World and a symbol of the Chinese museum boom in the 21st century.
