When pays a visit to Beijing, you can not miss the recently-opened Beijing Rose Museum which is also the world's first Chinese rose museum.

Covering 30,000 square meters, the museum boasts not just a conventional museum, but also four outdoor Chinese rose-themed parks and extensive grounds filled with roses.

Exhibits cover the history of Chinese roses, the geographical distribution of the species, early rose fossils, and depictions of the flower in art, ceramics and clothing.

Audio-visual displays create blooming roses, as well as inter-active games to test rose knowledge and the chance for visitors to breed their own virtual rose.

The rose-themed parks include artistic installations, and rose jam, rose tea and rose wine for purchase.

Daxing, the district where the museum is based, is famous for growing Chinese roses.

The museum is open 9am-6pm and costs RMB100.
