There’s nothing seedy about the Watermelon Museum of China. In fact it’s a modern, well-laid-out shrine to China’s favourite summer fruit. The museum is filled with facts about cultivation, breeding technology, distribution and more. Unsurprisingly it is not geared towards foreigners, so be prepared to rely on pictures for information – although, really, unless you have a deep-rooted interest in watermelon culture, this place is all about the novelty.
Don’t miss The unintentionally hilarious statues in the sculpture garden.
