The Hong Kong Jockey Club Series: "Western Scientific Instruments of the Qing Court" Exhibition
China has a rich cultural heritage, and Chinese science and technology contributed significantly to global civilisations in historical times. In the process of science and technological development in various historical eras, China had made exchanges with western countries in varying degrees. During the late Ming and Qing Dynasties, European missionaries travelled vast distances to come to China to spread the Christian faith. While devoting much efforts to learn the Chinese culture, they introduces a large number of Western scientific apparatuses to China. It was the time that scientific and cultural exchanges between China and the West reached the greatest heights.
