This event has ended.

This special exhibition includes recent discoveries regarding China’s tumultuous transition from the Han Dynasty (206-220) to the Three Kingdoms period (220-280). The Han Dynasty’s decline at the end of the second century ignited a prolonged power struggle between unrelenting military leaders. The country was split into three kingdoms called Wei, Shu, and Wu, a major event that would lead to a new era in China’s history. In recent years, research into this period has been reinvigorated by the excavation of the Cao Cao Mausoleum. The artifacts recovered there present their own version of this period’s history with a persuasive candor far surpassing written historical accounts.



from July 09, 2019 to September 16, 2019
Until 21:00 on Fridays and Saturdays. On a Public Holiday Monday, the museum is open. Closed on July 16th.
