After exploring some of Beijing’s more famous tourist hot spots (like the Great Wall), I decided to check out the Beijing Natural History Museum. Not only was the museum free, it had quite the collection of sex and reproduction-related exhibits. My favorite of which was a walk-in uterus. See the ovaries on either side? There’s even a little seat in there if you just want to hang out. How thoughtful! Once inside the womb, I was able to listen to a recording of what a fetus would hear inside its mother.
Here’s a closer picture of the sign above. I always wanted to “experience the feedling of bady!”
All in all, the museum was definitely worth the visit. If you’re traveling to Beijing and interested in sex education, it’s a worthwhile stop–especially if you’re traveling on a budget. Hopefully this will be the first of many posts on sexual health and reproduction exhibits across the globe!
