A museum showcasing the history of Changshan noodles opened to the public in Fangcun town, Changshan county, Quzhou, Zhejiang province on April 29.

The museum, featuring an experiential area, a demonstration zone showcasing noodle crafting techniques, and a workshop, aims to preserve traditional methods, cultivate artisans, and elevate the brand, as highlighted by Liu Feng, the museum's curator.

Over 30 students from the town visited the museum for its opening to delve into the historical significance of the noodles and engage closely with seasoned masters. Ten elderly residents were also invited to savor the noodles, sparking nostalgic memories of their childhood.

Dating back over 1,300 years, Changshan noodles and their intricate preparation methods were recognized as a city-level intangible cultural heritage in 2015. Crafting these noodles involves a meticulous blend of flour and camellia oil, with saltwater added to the mix. The dough is kneaded to a smooth consistency before being air-dried.

During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), these exceptional noodles were bestowed the honor of designation as an imperial gift, revered by the imperial court for their unparalleled quality and craftsmanship.
