Ming: 50 Years That Changed ChinaThrough spectacular objects from 15th century China, Ming: 50 Years That Changed China, the blockbuster autumn exhibition at the British Museum focuses on a little explored but spectacular period in the first half of 15th century when China became a global superpower. "There will be many surprises" in the exhibition, according to The Guardian, "including the world's first encyclopaedia and a form of imperial mini-golf." Ming dynasty objects dating from between 1400 and 1450 - exquisite porcelain, gold, jewellery, furniture, paintings, sculptures and textiles loaned by museums across China and the rest of the world - reveal a golden age, "a spectacularly dynamic and culturally fertile period" (The Guardian) when the capital was established in Beijing.

About British Museum

If you wanted to thoroughly explore the British Museum, it would take months, if not years. Over seven millions objects from all over the world are housed in this impressive museum of human history and culture (many of the artefacts are stored underneath the museum due to lack of space).
