Located at the northeast side of Xinhe Delta, New Changsha Municipal Museum covers an area of 20,000 square meters. The museum focuses mainly on the exhibition, collection, preservation and research of objects and specimen involving nature, history, culture, technology and science. New Changsha Municipal Museum is open to the public on Dec. 28, 2016.

 

The basement of the museum contains a storeroom, an art-designing room, a mounting room and research office. The first floor is equipped with an entrance hall, exhibition halls of folk customs, arts and painting and a lecture hall. The second floor houses exhibition halls of cultural relics and fine arts. The third floor features exhibition halls of revolutionary history, urban development, urban planning and an open multimedia exhibition room.

 

The museum is organized around a center courtyard, and offers a sense of space. Visitors can have a panoramic view of Xiangjiang River and Liuyang River at the museum’s green roof by walking up the ramp in the south, or enjoy an aromatic coffee at the semi-basement from the ramp of the courtyard or get access to exhibition halls on all floors by taking elevators in the atrium.

 

How to get there: take the No. 11 or No. 106 Bus to Liang Guan Yi Ting (二馆一厅站 literally means two pavilions and one hall—New Changsha Municipal Museum, New Changsha Municipal Library and Changsha Concert Hall), or take subway (line 1) to Beichen Sanjiaozhou (北辰三角洲站 Beichen Delta)

 

Background information:

 

Founded in 1986, the Changsha Museum has been opened to the public freely since the 20th of March 2008.

 

The new exhibition building of Changsha Museum is located in the east of the Binjiang Cultural Park in Changsha. The Museum is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and interpretation of history and traditions of Changsha. It is not only a memory house, a curious place, a discovery land, but also a place for your meditation, learning and entertainment. It houses approximately 50,000 cultural relics, including the bronze wares of the Shang and Zhou Dynasties, artifacts of the State of Chu and Han Dynasty, and the porcelain wares produced by the ancient kilns of Changsha.

 

At present, exhibition halls and public areas are partially open to visitors. At the end of 2016, the Museum will be completely open to the public and will launch two permanent exhibitions: “The Exhibition of Ancient Changsha History” and “The Exhibition of Modern Changsha History”.
