The Nanhu Revolutionary Memorial Hall in Jiaxing, East China's Zhejiang province, was recently upgraded to a first-class museum by the Chinese Museums Association, local media reported on Jan 4.

Established in 1959, the museum manages the site of the First National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC). That historic first meeting was held over Nanhu Lake in Jiaxing in 1921.

To better protect and utilize Nanhu Lake, the Nanhu Revolutionary Memorial Hall was given approval to establish a new museum, which opened to the public in 2011 to mark the 90th anniversary of the establishment of the CPC.

Since its establishment, the Nanhu Revolutionary Memorial Hall has constantly expanded its collection via donation, solicitation and acquisitions. Presently, the museum houses more than 10,000 artifacts, including revolutionary relics, precious documents, as well as valuable paintings and calligraphy works.
