The Beijing National Center for the Performing Arts, affectionately known as "The Egg," is well worth seeing for the architecture alone. However, being a thespian, what I really enjoyed was the Theatre Museum inside. The displays are wonderful, and the museum artfully combines scenic models (of incredible detail) with film montages of various productions. There are also costume displays. The museum includes displays of Chinese Opera, Drama, Dance and also includes Shakespeare, and Italian operas. I really enjoyed myself and could have spent another hour just taking everything in.
