A historical region in southern China, Huizhou stretched across what is today southern Anhui Province and the northeastern parts of neighboring Jiangxi.

Spend an interesting hour or so perusing the the collections of rare artifacts ranging from ink stone, old books and literature to instruments and unique emblems.
