Exhibiting antiquities from ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, Asia and around the world, this museum is also very popular among visitors from abroad. Maestro I.M. Pei was responsible for the concept and design of the museum, and about 80% of the building was laid underground to retain as much nature as possible.
