Recently, "Discover Shaanxi with Global Young" series activity, sponsored by the Publicity Department of CPC Shaanxi Provincial Committee and Shaanxi Media Convergence, organized by CNWEST, set its footstep into the Shaanxi Archaeology Museum. The museum is the first archaeology-themed museum in China, and via this visit, the global young were able to get close to archaeology and further learn about the achievements of cultural heritage here.

Shaanxi is one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilization, and its thousand years of history and culture became a unique resource of ancient relics. Shaanxi's archaeology has thus cultivated various large-scale heritage museums, renowned in China and abroad. Based on rich archaeological research results, the Shaanxi Academy of Archaeology has spent more than ten years preparing and building the first archaeological museum in China——Shaanxi Archaeology Museum, which was opened in April this year.

Located in Chang'an District, Xi'an, the museum was designed by Zhang Jinqiu, the well-known academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. Shaanxi Academy of Archaeology, established early and as a large-scale provincial archaeological research institution, has excavated thousands of ancient sites, tens of thousands of tombs, and sorted nearly 200,000 pieces (groups) of various cultural relics. The newly established Shaanxi Archaeology Museum brings these cultural heritages closer to the public.
