The Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.  Is the world’s largest research and museum complex, with 19 museums and galleries, the National Zoological Park, and various research stations. More than 137 million objects.  

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, New York Is the largest single building museum in the world.  An coincidentally holding a exhibit on Chinese calligraphy.  

Its free to visit the Smithsonian,  the Museum of art is $25.  The Louvre costs 16 euro.

Ignorance of one fifth of humanity does not count as culture and civilization.

Chinese culture is just one among many and it is far from the top in terms of cultures Swedish people wish to enrich their lives with. Other cultures just so much more influential at the moment.

In a word, No, not really.

  1. Is Chinese culture "highly regarded' in the West? Does the West evaluate Chinese culture by comparing it to roman civilization?
Copy code
No, not really! If it were it would be widely talked about and not limited to academics with Chinese wives
