On the afternoon of August 18th, Nanhai District (Foshan) government officially signed with Jianchuan Museum to jointly build the Jianchuan Centennial Museum of China. The museum is located in the central axis of Foshan West Railway Station Hub New City.
Firstly, large exhibition area. The museum complex is designed to cover an area of 400,000 m2, including the 90,000-m2 museum. It has about 1 million pieces/sets of collections, comparable to the scale of the National Museum of China.
Exhibition themes and series are rich and diverse. More than 70 galleries are open to the public in the first phase of the museum’s development. Later, it will expand by adding a new gallery each year till 2049 when there are an estimated total of 100 galleries.
In terms of museum exhibit design, Fan Jianchuan, curator of Jianchuan Museum told us, “I hope that these exhibits can remind us of the major events taking place each year, trivial things of folk life, buzzwords of the year, songs reminiscent of a particular time, etc. By re-presenting these scenes, we hope visitors can witness the 100-year development of China.” The museum will become an important window for the public to understand the development and achievement of China since 1949 through cultural relics and video materials as well as AR, VR, holographic images and other technologies, along with cutting-edge presentation forms such as culture and tourism IP, immersive theaters, and consumption scenes.
Build a commercial complex of culture and museum to magnify “museum +” effects
Unlike traditional museums, Jianchuan Centennial Museum of China innovates the “museum +” management model, integrating cultural tourism with commerce, hospitality and other industries, developing a new museum complex model of “museum + commerce + research and study + experience” to build a commercial complex of culture and museum with a construction area of about 400,000 m2.
The complex will become an ideal 1-2-day tour destination for people who want a short break. Meanwhile, the construction of the patriotism-themed museum galleries and the building of the “city of museums” greatly promote the construction of the patriotic education base and the development of private museums in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
