Situated in an impressively sleek and clean building, the Nanjing Museum is worth at least an hour or two of your time. Standouts include the Lacquerware Hall with an exquisitely carved Qing dynasty throne; the Jadeware Hall featuring an Eastern Han dynasty jade burial suit sewn together with silver from A.D. 200; and the Fabric Embroidery Hall, where visitors can view a demonstration of cloud-pattern brocade weaving on an old-fashioned loom. The basement level houses a nice folk-art section and earthenware from the Tang dynasty. The museum shop sells a wide selection of art and crafts.
