洛阳博物馆 One thing well worth doing in Luoyang is the museum featuring an extensive collection of ancient Zhou Dynasty bronzes as well as Han and Tang Dynasty porcelains, nearly all of which were made and found in the area, giving a sense of the former grandeur of the ancient capital. The Luoyang museum is a sparkling new building, having just opened in 2011 and featuring broad, uncrowded exhibit rooms as well as good air conditioning, making it a good way to beat the summer heat after the Longmen Caves. Even those with only a passing interest in porcelain should be satisfied by the excellent displays.
