Fodor's Review

All that's good about British colonial architecture is exemplified in this museum's simple white facade, wooden monsoon shutters, and colonnaded verandas. Hundreds of delicate tea sets from the Tang (618–907) through the Qing (1644–1911) dynasties fill rooms that once housed the commander of the British forces. Skip the lengthy, confusing tea-ceremony descriptions and concentrate on the porcelain pieces themselves. Be on the lookout for the unadorned brownish-purple clay of the Yixing pots, whose beauty hinges on perfect form.
