Great Wall Museum

Last updated by swakl at 2013-11-1

"The great Great wall" as the primary exhibition is composed four sections: the Great Wall in Chun & Qiu and Zhanguo period (a period of chaos, battling warlords and endless warfare); the Great Wall in Qing and Han Dynasty (a period of unification and prospering); the Great Wall in Sui, Tang, Liao and Jing Dynasty (a period of power and splendor in all areas: economic, political and cultural development), and the Great Wall in Ming Dynasty (a declining period facing severe invasions from Mongolia and coastline neighboring countries).

It is a showcase of 50-year archeological and anthropological research and findings on the 3000 years old Great Wall that stretches out 10,000 li (or 5,000 kilometers) and its dramatic historical status and relevance.

The multi modality exhibition, including charts, modes, illustrations, texts and diagrams, provides abundant and valuable data and information for researchers and investigators; at the same time it offers an interesting, integrated and knowledgeable tour for visitors to learn and appreciate the greatness, significance and the historical value of the Great Wall.

The Great Wall Museum is indeed a live-textbook of the Great Wall.

Well, I would like to say that Chinese ancient people were so great. When I came to the Great Wall Museum first, I was impressed by the spectacularity of the museum. It covers an area of 12,312 square meters. And then I found that I was interested in the display in the museum. From the museum, I knew that in different periods, Great Wall had different features. And I deadly love the cultural relics of different dynasties showed in it. They reflect parts of Chinese history. I think that the Great Wall Museum really offers integrated and direct knowledge for people.
