China Cartoon and Animation Museum to open in Hangzhou
The China Cartoon and Animation Museum, located near Baima Lake in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, will be open to the public on June 26.
The establishment of the new museum is seen as a reflection of the city's determination to develop itself into a national hub for creative culture and animation industries.
The site for the national-level museum has been approved by the National Radio and Television Administration and the China Animation Association.
The museum will feature some 20,000 paintings, playscripts, journals, models and accessories related to animation works. Aside from exhibition halls, the museum also houses theatres, libraries, audio-visual rooms, and other supporting facilities.
