Once again Father and Son team up and bring over 50 years of combined experience to bring to the world the next blockbuster traveling exhibition, San Bao; Treasures of the Bao Chuan, tells the captivating story of Admiral Zheng He, also known as San Bao the Eunuch. This exhibition will have you riveted with the fantastic voyages that were assembled during the third Ming Dynasty. San Bao led a mighty armada of seven voyages on a mission of diplomacy and trade. The armada included treasure boats (or Bao-Chuan), which are the largest wooden ships ever built over 430 feet and 92 feet wide (30 times larger than the Santa Maria.) The San Bao voyages covered 10,000 miles with a fleet of more than 300 ships and crews totaling 30,000 men. The voyages sailed from China, crossed the South China Sea, Indian Ocean and Arabian Sea and went as far as East Africa. From 1405 to 1433, Zheng made seven voyages, visiting 37 countries. He traveled through Southeast Asia to faraway Africa and Arabia, leading the biggest maritime expenditure of that time.

The exhibit showcases rare, personal belongings of San Bao, priceless Ming Artifacts, war armaments and adorned models. This is the first time these irreplaceable artifacts are being viewed in a collection of this magnitude. San Bao; Treasures of the Bao Chuan offers visitors an opportunity to see beyond San Bao and to gain an understanding of this complex figure as a man. This exhibition will include interactive exhibits, 200 artifacts, and majestic recreations of the Ming Dynasty. The throne room from the Imperial Palaces will bring this extra-ordinary time to light as of one of history's most dynamic explorers.
