So far, Shaanxi is home to 51 revolutionary memorial halls including former revolutionary sites, martyrs' memorial halls and museums exhibiting revolutionary cultural relics.
In May, Shaanxi launched an online platform to showcase revolutionary relics with the help of new technology, such as 5G and VR, according to Zhou Kuiying, deputy director of the provincial cultural heritage bureau.
The province will adopt more new technology on the protection and exhibition of the revolutionary relics to promote the spirit of the Chinese revolution, Zhou said.
