China The "Splendors of Han Dynasty: Exquisite Artifacts from the Royal Family" exhibition features 128 luxurious and elegant artifacts from the Han Dynasty royal family, sourced from the Hebei Museum and the Hebei Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology. This exhibition offers visitors a glimpse into the magnificent lifestyle and unique cultural pursuits of Han Dynasty princes. The exhibition is divided into two sections: "The Princes of Zhongshan" and "Eternal Joy."
