Reaching across the rich heritage of China's ancient dynasties, this exhibition features never before seen new acquisitions from the Nelson-Atkins extraordinary Chinese collection.

Each object tells a story of the culture, the people and their beliefs that have endured for centuries.

Among the finest surviving examples, from nearly seven centuries of China's past, these works exhibit master craftsmanship in bronze, stoneware, jade and more.

A royal palace dragon stands guard, just as it did nearly five hundred years ago, beckoning visitors to discover the treasures of ancient China.
