Opened on May 19, 2014, the Chinese Treasury re-creates the type of collecting and display found in the treasure cabinets (duo bao ge) assembled throughout the late Ming (1368–1644) and Qing (1644–1911) dynasties. Extraordinary works in ivory, rhinoceros horn, glass, porcelain, and jade and other hard stones celebrate the skill and imagination of Chinese artists in designing and crafting these materials. Touchpads allow viewers to read introductory texts for all of the objects and to explore further by grouping the works of art by material and by themes.
