Photos and description

In 1956 in the city of Hefei was founded a Museum dedicated to the culture, history and relics of Anhui province. In large areas with an area of 10,000 square kilometers there are about 200 thousand exhibits, representing various ancient artifacts found during excavations in the vicinity of Hefei.

The Museum consists of three main pavilions, among which the most distinguished hall with an exhibition of bronze sculptures, ancient books, coins, weapons, articles of jade and portraits, engraved on stone slabs. These relics belong to the Zhou and Shan eras, when China was actively developing a new direction in art.

In the other two halls are shown paleontological finds, including the remains of the skeleton of a mammoth, a woolly rhinoceros and petrified parts of extinct animals. Special attention deserves the collection of the famous China artist pan Huilan, considered the founder of impressionism in China. For works by Museum staff was allocated a pavilion containing over a thousand paintings, each of which has the inscription in English and Chinese.

The Museum is equipped with modern equipment that allows to organize tours, exhibitions, symposiums, scientific activities aimed at the development and preservation of traditions of Anhui province. For visitors developed a special tour program, including a detailed story about each exhibit and purchase Souvenirs in the small shop, located on the first floor of the building.
