The Palace Museum recently opened a new museum of foreign antiques in Xiamen, the coastal city in east China. Located on the resort island of Gulangyu, the museum features china, pottery and enamel vessels from Britain, France, Germany, and the United States, among others

Gifted by foreign missions in the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties, the antiques were an important feature of the decor of palaces in China, serving as artifacts of the rich cultural exchanges between China and other countries over the centuries.

The new museum is housed on the site of the former Hope Hospital and its adjoining nurses’ residence, built by the American Reformed Church in 1989.

This is the Palace Museum’s first branch outside of Beijing.
