Yantai Museum is a comprehensive modern museum showcasing the city's culture, history and art.
The museum has two sites. The original one, popularly known as the Fujian Hall, which is also a national key cultural relic site, presents Yantai’s local folk culture and Mazu culture.
The new site, with an area of 17,000 square meters, is located in the western end of the Yantai Culture Square and provides visitors with a place to get to know Yantai’s history and culture.
The museum houses 60,000 pieces and sets of artworks in 24 categories including painting and calligraphy, porcelain, pottery, bronze ware, jade carving, embroidery, and historical archives.
Permanent exhibitions feature calligraphy, painting, porcelain and unearthed cultural relics from the Ming (1368-1644) and the Qing (1644-1911) dynasties. They not only showcase Chinese ancient culture and traditional arts but also reflect local customs, historical development and folk culture in the Jiaodong area.
