The Museum of Majiabang Culture in Jiaxing, East China's Zhejiang province, began trial operations on International Museum Day on May 18.

The museum covers an area of 8,000 square meters and exhibits unearthed relics from Majiabang ruins. It also showcases the distribution, features, geographical environment, and major influences of Majiabang culture.

The museum will accept no more than 300 visitors per day, all of whom are required to make reservations in advance.

Before entering the museum, visitors must present a green health QR code indicating that they have only a small chance of being infected with novel coronavirus, have their temperature taken, and wear a face mask.

Visitors whose temperature is higher than 37.3 degrees centigrade and who have symptoms of fever or cough or who have a yellow or red health QR code will not be allowed to enter the museum.

Visitors are advised to tour the museum for no more than one hour and maintain a distance of more than 1.5 meters from other visitors.

Human guides, educational activities, and profit-making projects are currently unavailable at the museum.

Majiabang culture , named after the Majiabang ruins discovered in Jiaxing in 1959, is the earliest prehistoric culture of the Taihu Lake region. It came about after Humudu culture (7,000 years ago) and before the Songze (6,000 to 5,300 years ago) and Liangzhu (5,300 to 4,300 years ago) cultures.

Majiabang culture is regarded as the source of Liangzhu culture, and the Liangzhu ruins were inducted into the UNESCO World Heritage list last year.


Hours: 9:30—16:30 from Tuesday to Sunday (visitors are not allowed to enter the museum after 16:00)
