The Jinhua Railway Culture Center, which was formerly the old Jinhua Railway Station, opened on March 26 in Jinhua, Zhejiang province.
Established in 1931, the railway station was once a famous landmark in the city.
The first floor of the culture center used to function as a waiting hall. Now, there is a huge visual art installation that spans all the way to the second floor. Looking from different angles, different patterns will be displayed: A locomotive, golden camellias, and fingered citrons.
The railway culture center has a collection of thousands of vintage items, including tickets, ticket vouchers, signal lights, and signal flags. The smallest item here is the button of a rail uniform and the largest is a steam locomotive.
The old Jinhua Railway Station opened to the public in 1932 and was the largest in Zhejiang following its expansion after the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45).
The railway station was one of the most important transportation hubs in Zhejiang until 1996 when its passenger service was transferred to the current Jinhua Railway Station.
Address: Intersection of West Zhongshan road and Jinhong street, Wucheng district, Jinhua
