There is a white wall in the yard. Rain hits on the wall and makes it look like Monochromes. Never forget the view.

The building of this museum is very beautiful, inside of it, you can read the history of this city, so it's a must visit place in town.

The museum was designed by I. M. Pei, the acclaimed Chinese-American architect. He borrowed elements from traditional Chinese gardening aesthetics into this contemporary architecture.

I didn't explore the galleries at all, rather I chose to explore the interior architecture and the veiws from the outside. I was rather museumed out and there wasn't enough time to do it all justice.
