About the Exhibition
A selection of classical Chinese antique furniture from the museum’s permanent collection is also showcased alongside the main exhibition. 50 pieces of classical Chinese furniture are used to demonstrate a comparison between Chinese and Persian motifs, including the dragon; the phoenix; flower-and-bird; and cloud. This section aims to showcase the shared decorative heritage of the Chinese and Persian empires.
Please note that access to the 3/F, where this part of the exhibition is displayed, is limited to guided tours (with an admission of HK$200) only.
