In the city of Wuhan, we took a quick tour of the city before boarding our flight to Shanghai.
There's been a Yellow Crane Tower at the present site as far back as the year 223. The tower has been the subject of many poets and painters. Inside the tower there are architectural models of the previous incarnations, which were all lost to fire. The tower is the centerpiece of a park featuring beautiful gardens, ponds, and gazebos. There's a nice view of the city from the top.
The museum is built around the burial objects found in the tomb of Marquis Yi of the Zeng (433 BCE). Apparently a music lover, the marquis was not traveling light to the next world because there were over 7000 objects found, including many musical instruments and a full set of ceremonial bells (below). The museum has an auditorium where costumed performers will play music using reproductions of similar instruments, including the larget set of bells.
