Modern Chinese craftsmanship gets its own space in this museum located on the fifth floor of the Parkson department store. The exhibits showcase contemporary artisans' work in materials from clay and cloisonné to lacquerware and ceramics. Enormous and elaborate carvings in jade and ivory show the painstaking work involved. The displays are designed to prove that true craftsmanship is as alive and well today as it was in ancient times. At the very least, the museum provides a nice introduction to traditional crafts in China. You can easily spend a free hour here.
