A series of events were launched in Xi'an, capital of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, to mark International Museum Day on May 18.

An opening ceremony was also held for a newly-built museum where the bronze chariots and horses excavated from Emperor Qinshihuang's mausoleum are being exhibited.

Experts were invited to the Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum in order to explain the history behind the cultural relics to the public, improving their appreciation of the objects and thus enhancing the relics' protection awareness.


Shaanxi History Museum held a series of activities including the Tang Dynasty (618-907) cultural and creative stage show, museum volunteer interpretation services, themed education activities, the voluntary identification of folk cultural relics, and mural restoration experiences.

Ten museums including Shaanxi History Museum, Emperor Qinshihuang's Mausoleum Site Museum and Xi'an Beilin Museum also exhibited cultural and creative products.

Shaanxi Provincial Cultural Heritage Bureau signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Shaanxi Xinhua Publishing and Media Group and Shaanxi Provincial Department of Education, marking a solid step forward in terms of promoting the regional culture of Shaanxi, showcasing the Shaanxi cultural brand, and helping the world to better understand Shaanxi.

At present, Xi'an has 157 museums of various types (134 officially registered), including seven at national first-level, four at national second-level, and six at national third-level. It is a veritable treasure trove of natural history museums.
