Great Wall Museum
The Great Wall Museum in Jiayuguan is the first theme museum to show the Great Wall culture in a comprehensive and systematic way in China. Newly located in the Jiayuguan cultural relics scenic spot, it has been open to the public since 1989 after its first construction in the south of Xinhua Road of Jiayuguan City.
Looking around the museum, visitors may separate in two different tour routes. The first one is in chronological order, since the main exhibition part “the great Great Wall” is divided into four periods, including the Spring and Autumn Period (770-221BC), the Qin (221-206 BC) and Han Dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), the Northern Wei (386-534 AD) to the Jin (1115-1234 AD), and the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644 AD). It perfectly shows visitors the history of the Great Wall in the past 3,000 years. The second way refers to different themes, like the ancient weaponry, cultural relics, as well as paintings and calligraphy works by famous artists, a total of 7,000 pieces of works of arts can provide precious material object evidences for researches on the Great Wall of China. Besides, various exhibiting forms, like colorful charts, models, diagrams, and pictures, all display the research achievements on the Great Wall in the past half century and provide visitors the direct knowledge of Great Wall in a visualized way.
The Great Wall Museum is widely known as the“Textbook of the Great Wall Culture”for its visualized forms, rich and colorful collections.
