It is a habit at the Museum for the staff and friends to join in picture taking. Not being only a Chinese habit, it is however very cherished by the Chinese who keep the pictures as mementos.
Through these pictures one can see the great harmony and friendship that exists among everyone.
The staff is multi-national. From local Chinese, mainland Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, Colombian, all linked by a great spirit.
