BEIJING - The Museum of the Communist Party of China (CPC) is set to open soon in Beijing, the National Cultural Heritage Administration (NCHA) said Wednesday.

From June, the new museum will host an exhibition on the history of the CPC, according to an NCHA press release.

The memorial of the first National Congress of the CPC in Shanghai will also open a new exhibition hall to visitors shortly, said Gu Yucai, vice director of the NCHA, at a press conference in Beijing.

China now has more than 1,600 museums and memorials themed on its revolutionary history. From 2018 to 2020 these institutions launched more than 4,000 exhibitions, according to the NCHA.

Meanwhile, the country has registered more than 36,000 revolutionary heritage sites and possesses a collection of more than 1 million related artifacts.

From 2016 to 2020, the NCHA approved nearly 400 conservation projects concerning revolutionary cultural heritage, Gu said.

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC, the NCHA has recommended 109 high-quality exhibitions across the country, Gu said.
