Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Luoyang Museum is a local historical museum in Luoyang, Henan Province of China. Situated in the Yellow River valley, the museum is 160 kilometres west of Zhengzhou. It offers exhibits of the rich cultural heritage of Luoyang, a major Chinese cultural centre, which was the capital of more than a dozen ancient dynasties of the Xia and the East Zhou. The museum was first built in 1958 in Guanlin, 7 kilometres south of Luoyang City. It was moved to the north side of Zhongzhou Road in 1973 near the Wangcheng Park, which, at an area of 67 hectares, is the largest public park in Luoyang. The new museum opened on May 1, 1974. It houses relics from excavation sites on the outskirts of Luoyang, in the city's old section. They include antiquaries from palaces and temples. These artifacts establish the historical past of Luoyang, representing elements of the ancient city of nine capitals, from Neolithic times up to 937 AD. Another museum in Luoyang also contains archaeological finds, the Luoyang Ancient Tombs Museum, but it specializes in tombs as more than 10,000 have been found in the local area.show more
