Views from Travelers:
Mr Sackler donated three southeast art museums in his life. Peking University Sackler Museum of Art and Archaeology is one of them. Unfortunately, I went there when the school began. I could not get into the campus without the student ID.
In June, I went to visit Peking University again. Peking University is a palace of knowledge and homeland of spirit. I came across to pass Minghe Yard and saw this museum. It is said to be the first Archaeology Museum in Chinese institutions. I spent a wonderful afternoon there.
This is really a good place! I've been there for several times. There are lots of things from Neolithic age. If you go to Peking University, you can go to the museum after you visit Weiming Lake.
The name of Peking University Sackler Museum of Art and Archaeology is a little difficult to remember. There are exhibitions of heritage, photos and cartoons. As a college museum, it the the super one.
