There are so many nice pieces in the exhibit. The main hall has the lower hull portion of an ancient ship raised from the seafloor just of the port of Quanzhou. Lots to learn from a small museum.

Please note that this museum, like most museums, is closed on Monday. Two of the exhibition halls are closed on the day I visit. I end up seeing only a large number of excavated tombstones. Not really my things, unfortunately.
