  • Bigger than expected and take you from his childhood all the way to his 7 voyages. All well explained. The only miss was a guide. Takes a few hours to read all the panels. Definitely worth a visit.

  • It's beautiful places
  • We were told that there was renovation in progress, but it is possible to visit museum anyway. We haven't spotted a lot of renovation going on, though. The museum is interesting, but I'd recommend to read the history of Cheng Ho before visiting, because some stands are not really informative, and moreover it is pretty hot inside and you would not want to spend extra time reading. I guess there going to be air conditioning after the renovation.
