A new museum opened in Beijing, China dedicated to the history and culture surrounding the traditional dish of roast duck.

Located at a branch of the Quanjude restaurant chain, the museum "contains more than 500 items, Quanjude says, such as a coupon from a duck sale dating back to 1901, advertisements for the restaurant from the Republic of China era and various photos of former Chinese leaders consuming roast duck including Mao Zedong and former prime minister Zhou Enlai, who ate Quanjude duck alongside U.S. president Richard Nixon at the Great Hall of the People during Mr. Nixon's visit to China in 1972," according to the Wall Street Journal.
