The Rose Museum in Beijing, China is the first of its kind and was designed by 'NEXT Architects.'

It is not difficult to understand what the main subject of the museum is by looking at it from the outside. The building is comprised of an enormous stainless steel facade that has large cutouts of roses surrounding it. From the inside, these rose perforations cast unique lights and shadows across the museum floor. The museum features many displays including a "History of Roses" in which ancient rose fossils are shown and a "China Rose Garden."

The Rose Museum has a beautiful exterior that leaves no one guessing and its botanical subject matter is sure to attract locals and tourists alike.
