Peabody Essex Museum

Today, I made a donation to the Peabody Essex Museum. The Peabody Essex is a hidden gem, located in Salem, Massachusetts. If you're not familiar with it, read the Wikipedia page; it actually has an interesting history. It's expanding right now, and will soon join the ranks of the 10 largest museums in the US.

The real draw is the Yu Yin Tang house. The house was home for eight generations of the Huang family in Huizhou, China. It was painstakingly dismantled and reassembled in the museum, opening up in 2003. Today, I also visited the house for the second time. It was actually more interesting to me this time, perhaps because we were the first ones in and could take our time.
