Capital Museum

Inside the shell, there is an oval slanted bronze building. The architects revealed its shape by letting it protrude. Theoretically, it symbolizes bringing ancient knowledge to light. Although much smaller than the enormous shell, it is still a large museum. It is devoted to art objects such as jade, paintings, and calligraphy. Each of its six floors has a different purpose.
