What is inside? The website doesn’t say, but there’s a line to get inside the Shandong Provincial Museum that zigzags along the front and then trails off two thirds of the way up to the street!
I guess it would take two hours or more to get inside.

Free admission made the phrase, “It was a zoo!” come to life. It was shoulder to shoulder past the gate and an announcement blared saying the zoo was overcapacity and dangerous. Hence we decided to save the zoo for another day.
For a unit on art, I asked my students to visit a museum. Since whenever I’ve gone to the Shandong Provincial Museum, I’ve been able to saunter right in, I was astonished when a student sent me this photo. Today’s the last day to see European paintings and a self-portrait by da Vinci.
