The Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region Museum is in the capital of the region, Yinchuan city, in the old city district. It is located in the grounds of the Chengtian Temple and uses the main building of the temple as its central hall.
This was built in traditional manner in 1988 on the foundations of a Qing dynasty building; the rest of the buildings are auxiliary halls also built around 1988. Behind these ‘front-court’ buildings is a courtyard-style building built in the Qing dynasty. The institution is a comprehensive-style museum that brings together Ningxia historical artifacts, items of people’s customs, and art collections that have been passed down through the ages.

Ningxia Historical Artifacts Exhibition
This focuses on articles from local history, from ancient times up to Ming and Qing. It is divided into sections as follows: primitive society, Shang and Zhou,Qin and Han, Sui and Tang, Song and Yuan, Ming and Qing, and mostly displays items that have been passed down through generations. Objects of natural-history interest include fossilized paleontological material. Early archaeological material includes ceramics of the Majiayao culture, and artifacts from all the dynastic periods of China that represent the border regions cultures. From ancient times, the Ningxia region has been a confluence of cultures, a place where many different nationalities and peoples came together. It displays in particular the interaction of people from border regions and people of the central plains. The Ningxia historical exhibitions provide tangible evidence of this rich history.

The Western Xia History Exhibition
This exhibition portrays the historical development of the Xi Xia Kingdom (1038-1227), using excavated Western Xia artifacts combined with historical documents. Yinchuan City was the Kingdom’s capital. Western Xia kings, concubines, and aristocracy are buried in the tomb precinct in the eastern ranges of the Helan Mountains. Among the items on display here are architectural materials excavated from Western Xia tombs, plus Western Xia ceramics recovered from ancient kiln sites at Lingwu. Articles reflect the history, culture, arts, architecture, and political system of both Western Xia and Dangxiang tribes.

The Ningxia Hui Minority Peoples’ Customs Exhibition
This exhibition displays the customs of the local Hui people. It shows Hui religion, architecture, handicrafts, clothing, eating customs, ceremonies, and wedding and funeral customs.

Exhibition of Stone Rubbings from the Helan Mountains
The Helan Mountains contain a large number of ancient petroglyphs. Rubbings from these, together with color photographs of the designs, show the early presence and activities of northern-steppe nomadic people’s customs. These include sacrifices, hunting, herding, and so on. The Ningxia Museum currently has around 10,000 items in its collections, which are divided into eight major categories. Notable objects include northern grassland culture animal-style bronze ornaments, Western Han gold, silver and bronze ornaments, Tang-dynasty and Western Xia works of art of various kinds, and Yuan and Ming-dynasty gilded-bronze Buddhist sculpture.

This museum was established in 1978 on the east side of the People’s Square in Nanning City and in 1988 a new People’s Cultural Hall was added to it. The entire Museum occupies 56,757 square meters of space with a building space of 22,761 square meters. The exhibition building is a modern structure with southern architectural characteristics, which contains six exhibition halls.

The ‘Guangxi Historical Artifacts Exhibition’ exhibits all periods of Guangxi history from Primitive Society up to the Opium War (1840-1842), reflecting local culture and the interchange with the Central Plains and neighboring regions and the process of cultural melding and development. The exhibition of the ‘Liujiang Man’ shows the earliest hominid fossil found to date within the borders of Guangxi. It belongs to the late period of hominids and is the earliest representative of modern man found to date not only inside China but in all of the Southeast Asia region.

Stone tools manufactured in more than one hundred sites have been found in Guangxi. Mesolithic-period polishedblade stone tools and stones with finely wrought holes in them are displayed in the museum, as well as a wealth of artifacts from the Neolithic period. Neolithic sites are divided into three main types, those in caves, on hills, and on mountain slopes and artifacts are exhibited from all three. Of particular note is a large ceremonial shovel-shaped object that is 66.4 cm in length and 44.8 cm wide. The quality of its manufacture, its size, and its polishing make it a superlative work.

In the Shang and Zhou periods, two tribes who lived in Guangxi began to have political, economic and cultural relations with the Central Plains region. Certain bronze items are evidence of this cultural interchange although there is also evidence that 2,500 years ago, during the late Western Zhou period, Guangxi’s ancient inhabitants were creating their own brilliant bronze culture. Items in the Museum that demonstrate this culture include spears, axes, ladles, bells, and many other items found the ‘Matou Yuanlongpo’ grave in Wuming County. Early inhabitants also achieved a high level of ceramic technology, with firing temperatures of 1150 degrees centigrade. Many such ceramics are on display in the Museum.

Among the bronzes exhibited are some that allow the visitor to understand something of the ancient Guangxi

bronze-drum culture. There are more than 300 drums from this culture in the Museum. One such drum is exhibited in a prominent position; other bronzes include a snake-headed frog-patterned vessel called a zun, and other items that clearly show the influence of local artistic traditions. A group of iron objects excavated from the Northern Guangxi region indicate that Guangxi had entered the iron-culture stage by the Warring States period. Qin-dynasty evidence in Guangxi attests to a more than two-thousand-year-old practice of systematic canal-making in the region. Handynasty objects are primarily excavated from Hanperiod tombs and indicate that from this time onward the parallel cultures began to merge. The regional-culture treasures that are exhibited include bronze drums with carved inscriptions, lacquer painted bronze basins, bronze horses, bronze phoenix lanterns, lacquer eared cups, bamboo flutes, celadon bowls, glass cups and so on. A ‘Yellow Dragon’ bronze mirror is unique among all Three Kingdom bronze mirrors. An excavated inscribed tablet excavated from a Jin-dynasty grave notes that ‘disasters are reigning throughout the land but south of the river all is peaceful.’This reflects the warring conditions on the central plains during the end of the Western-Jin period, whereas Guangxi was relatively peaceful and the economy was developing rapidly.

The ‘Ancient Bronze Drums Exhibit’ displays representative works of the eight main types of bronze drums from the Spring and Autumn period to the Qing dynasty, together with relevant documents, drawings and models. It narrates the chronological development, distribution, types, uses, and modern usage of bronze drums in the region. One drum of note is the so-called thundercloud-patterned drum, excavated from Beiliu County in Guangxi. It has a diameter of 165 centimeters and weighs 300 kilometers, and to date is the largest bronze drum to have been found.
Another exhibition reflects the customs of the eleven national minorities in Guangxi. It exhibits their costumes, weavings, dying techniques, embroidery and so on, as well as items to do with local festivals. The Ethnic Minorities Cultural Relics Garden is an outdoor exhibition of rooms of national minority customs. This reproduces certain minority-people’s architecture, such as the wooden railing buildings of the Zahuang, bamboo structure of Yao, hanging buildings of Miao, homes of Maonan, drum towers, wind and rain bridges of Dong, and other special features of local architectural design.

787棋牌游戏中心-皇恩娱乐 is located at the center of Jing-zi Dajie Center in Shenyang City, Liaoning Province. It covers 60,000 square meters and is a history museum with collections and exhibits that deal mainly with Qing dynasty art and artifacts.

Formerly called the Fengtian Palace Museum (sometimes, people called it as Later Jin Palace or Shengjing Palace), then the National Shenyang Museum, in 1954 it was officially renamed the Shenyang Palace Museum. In 1961, the State Council placed it among the ranks of National Key Cultural Relics Protected Units. The permanent exhibits of the museum are divided into two parts, one showing historical artifacts of the court and the other showing Qing-dynasty arts and crafts.

The 领逸娱乐棋牌游戏中心 is the only well preserved group of ancient palace buildings in the country except for the Beijing Palace Museum. The complex is divided into three parts, the Eastern Way, the Central Way, and the Western Way. The architecture of the main building of the Eastern Way is characteristic of a horseriding arrow-shooting people who used tent palaces; this Dazheng Hall once hosted tremendous ceremonies.

The main building of the Central Way was where the emperor held daily meetings with his court to conduct governmental affairs and receive ministers. Inside, objects are arranged as they were during the Qianlong period. Inside a separate hall to the west are objects used by the emperors Qianlong and Jiaqing as these two emperors made their long investigative trips through the country.

On the western side of the Shenyang Palace Museum are riding grounds where horses were kept and trained, also a pavilion in which the emperor watched plays when he did his ‘eastern sojourn.’ There is also a reconstruction of a Ming-dynasty pavilion from Ningbo, which is one of the seven halls in the Qing dynasty to receive a copy of the famous Yongle-period encyclopedia known as the Siku Quanshu, or the Four Warehouses of All Knowledge.

Most of the Shenyang Palace Museum collections of documents and artifacts date from the Qing dynasty, though some are from the Ming. Many are of interest for their historical value but some are of great artistic value as well, such as paintings by Dong Qichang (1555-1636), a famous Ming painter and calligrapher.

Some of the more representative treasures that have been exhibited from the collections of the Museum are Qing-dynasty weapons, musical instruments, palace accouterments, ceramics, carvings, textiles and embroideries, lacquerware, and amber.
