10. Grand show of New China's retrieved relics
National Museum of China (Sep 17-Nov 27)
To showcase China's arduous yet fruitful journey of cultural relic retrieval over the last 70 years, a monumental exhibition featuring more than 600 valuable cultural relics was held at the National Museum of China, offering the public a rare chance to appreciate treasures that define our national identity.
Divided into four sections, the exhibition unfolds 25 stories of how the relics and artifacts were brought home.
Since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, more than 150,000 Chinese cultural relics have returned from overseas in around 300 batches through law enforcement cooperation, lawsuits, negotiations and donations, according to Liu Yuzhu, head of the National Cultural Heritage Administration.
