Opening on Friday 27 June at the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh, the summer exhibition `Ming: The Gold Empire` will run until 19 October 2014.

The Ming dynasty (1368-1644) was a period of China`s history marked by economic strength and a dramatic flourishing of the art.

Meaning brilliant or bright, the Ming era represents the starting point of modern China. A collection of original artefacts from the Nanjing Museum, including Chinese National Treasures, introduce key aspects of the Ming dynasty, focussing on the remarkable cultural, technological and economic achievements of the period. This will be the only UK showing of this internationally significant exhibition.
