Yin Yu TangI like the use of ancient Chinese architecture in the design of this site: Yin Yu Tang, A Chinese Home. Superb use of minimal Flash. The magnifying glass, the small panoramic video slides and the interactive areas are great touches.

"Yin Yu Tang, a late Qing dynasty merchants' house, was originally located in southeastern China. Re-erected at the Peabody Essex Museum, Yin Yu Tang is now open to visitors. Explore the house to discover this rare example of the region's renowned architecture and to learn about the daily life of the Huang family, who lived in Yin Yu Tang for over 200 years."
