    Lovely barges yet somewhat bland and boring in dock. Much nicer when you can see them in use on the river.

    Great collection of ceremonial barges each with their own unique design. If you have the time, sit for a few minutes and watch the informative video (it's played on a continuous loop) to get more info on these floating works of art. The only drawback to this open-air museum is that if you want to take pictures, you have a to pay a small fee...
