Luoyang Museum & Botanical Garden

Luoyang Museum & Botanical Garden

In our efforts to look for the Luoyang Museum, we ended up at the Botanical Gardens.  There were no direct bus so we thought to walk after our bus stopped 'near' there.  It was a nice detour.  We got to stroll aimlessly and the kids got to run around out of sight which is quite a treat!

 It's packed during Spring when the Peonies are in bloom but in the fall, it is quite empty.

[VIDEO] Alvin, Emma and Eli tried out this cool spin top.  The heavy metal tops are handmade by this man who starts it merely by whipping it.  Its speed causes a buzzing sound long after its whipped.

The day we were to leave, Mr. Wang Wei accommodated a late check out at 4pm, allowing us to visit the museum in the morning.  The museum was very informative though only the main signs were in English.  It was well worth the visit and gave us an understanding of the findings from early dynasties in the area.

 These beautiful pots are dated over 7000 yrs old.
