Zhangqiu is one of Shangdong's ancient epicenters that retains the most complete sequence of regional cultures. Located in Jinan, capital city of Shandong province and opened to the public on the first day of 2016, the Zhangqiu District Museum boasts a collection of 26,000 artworks and cultural relics that testify to the production levels, the social hierarchy, the rites and rituals, and the consummate craftsmanship and superb artistic achievements that have thrived throughout the ages on this land.
With a construction area of about 30,000 square meters, the museum has become a cultural landmark of Jinan and now constitutes the largest cultural complex in the east of the city.
The permanent collection includes farm tools, weapons, potteries, porcelains, bronze wares, jade wares, stone wares, gold articles and engraved wood blocks for printing, some of which span thousands of years from the Neolithic Age of 9,000 years ago to the first half of the20th century.
Three permanent exhibitions are on display in this museum, themed around historical relics in Zhangqiu, the Han Dynasty tomb discovered at the Luozhuang village in Zhangqiu, and archeological treasures from the Weishan Han Dynasty tomb in Zhangqiu. A wide spectrum of about 1,800 fine cultural relics will take you through time and space to show you the brilliant Neolithic Age and its Houli, Dawenkou and Longshan cultures, as well as the ensuing magnificent pre-Qin and Han cultures.
The Zhangqiu District Museum is a place to look back on ancient human habitation and prosperity, to witness the inheritance of ancient civilization, and to perceive the time-honored history as well as the rich cultural accumulation in the land of Zhangqiu.
