The Ocean-like Man Exhibition of Victor Hugo
In Hugo’s view, a large number of ocean people exist in the world. The waves, the up-and-down tides, the waves splashing back and forth, the sounds of air currents, the darkness and transparency, the creatures living under those whirlpools, the panic and dangers brought by those rainstorms, and the eagles hovering over those waves… All these in Hugo’s eyes are named elves in some spiritual perspective. These elves originate from elf clans and have transformed into a school of strength. They bring ups and downs to people’s thoughts. In Juvenal’s writings, Dante’s eyes, and St. Paul’s and Shakespeare’s books, these are the elves of different kinds that have been defined by them and belong to them. To describe the width and expansion of Hugh’s works, you can only use the oceans. He was a poet, playwright, novelist, stylist and politician. When Hugo ended his exile and returned to France, he collected his plays and expressions of opinions. This is the time that he sacrificed for his writing, and it is the time he spent on his own ocean-like life. It is there where he composed three plays in his life.

China Art Gallery (Mostly Modern Art)
If want to see traditional Chinese art, don't come here. This mostly modern art, but distictively Chinese still. Most of the facilities are exhibits. When I was there it was laquer art and photography of China, an modern ink paintings. The modern art was facinating. Upper floors have recent historical art work (c. 1900-1970) on permanent display and a small amount of regional art work, like paper cuttings.
The museum has typical Tues-Sun hours. It had electronic multimedia screens to use, but they were both only in Chinese and seemed to be malfunctioning.
