    Residents in Taiyuan are complaining about this new city museum that cost 830 million yuan (about $134 million) to build, but looks like a set of enormous instant noodle pots.

    The inverted cone-shaped buildings have been dubbed the “five giant noodle barrels” by some locals, according to Tencent News.
