Linyi Museum

Linyi museum lies at the center of Linyi City. It is shaped as four thick books stacking over one another. The museum is ranked top 10 in the entire Shandong province. It is very much privileged by its location being at the very center of China’s civilization. Linyi Museum dominates the collection of over 2,000 pieces of treasures at the national level from the Old Stone Age to Modern China. A must-see exhibit is the Han dynasty stone painting which represents the top of classical stone-carving painting and was designed for ancient loyalty graves by the Han dynasty. Among those 2,000+ masterpieces, many of them have been on display at various museums around the world representing China. Your 3-hour visit here will save you a lot of flight time & money.

Jade Suits at the Linyi Museum

Shandong is China’s giant province for cultural heritage. It tops China with 600+ museums. Of the 600, 18 are China’s National Museum at Level One. Shocking exhibits documented the genetic evolution of Chinese culture over the centuries. Each one of the 18 museums has treasures of top brilliancy. This one-of-a-kind jade suit without its complete armory comes from the Museum of Linyi. Only the headgear, gloves, and boots were uncovered perfectly intact. These are rare treasures in the world, but unique in shape in China.

Can you guess what the upper body and limbs of the armor suit would look like?
