This is a house from a small village in China, Huang Cun, that was disassembled piece by piece and reassembled here at the museum. You really feel like you are there in China while walking around because this is an entire house, not just the interior. What I found most interesting was the concept of almost no exterior windows (for security reasons apparently). All rooms open into the center. As the narrator said, the focus was on family and not so much what was going on outside of your home. When you visit the Chinese House you get a device called an Audio Guide that provides narration while you make your way through the many rooms of the home. Admission to the Museum and the Chinese House for children/youth is free. For adults, admission to the museum is $15 and $5 extra for the Chinese House exhibit. So even for a large family like mine this is very affordable. http://www.pem.org
This is always an informative read. And soon the sales/marketing teams at most every security vendor will start quoting all kinds of ugly things from the report to make the case for their “solution”. Sales people even practice reciting stats from the report to make their case. In many cases they have no idea what the hell they are quoting.
