Imagining China

Shakespeare for Kids

China is an ancient civilization that has attracted travelers and explorers for hundreds of years. It is home to many rare plants and animals, including leopards, porpoises, and giant pandas. Chinese inventors and scientists made important discoveries, which impressed visitors from other lands.  


During Shakespeare's lifetime, people in Europe learned more and more about China. Click on the pictures below to make your own discoveries!


The exhibition is open from September 18, 2009 to January 9, 2010.
