This January, the leader of Shang Capital Site Museum project of China Construction Second Engineering Bureau, said, "the main building of the museum has been completed and we are now preparing for exhibition arrangement. At present, we are mainly busy with work, including internal decoration, security, office equipment installation, etc."

These spaces can provide good places for exhibition, protection, restoration and research of cultural relics.

Shang Capital Site Museum is an important witness to the continuous urban civilization in the past 3,600 years in Zhengzhou. It is expected to open to visitors in the second half of this year. Let's get ready.


Highlighting the innovation spirit in the Central Plains

The New Henan Science and Technology Museum

The new Henan Science and Technology Museum is located beside Xianghu Lake, Zhengdong New District, Zhengzhou City. It is the public welfare investment project with the largest scale and the highest investment in Henan Province, as well as the largest sci-tech museum under construction in China, ranking at the forefront in the global sci-tech museums. After the completion of the new site, its scale will be only second to the Guangdong Science Center, the world's largest sci-tech museum.

The new site is located in the north of Jinshui Avenue, east of Jinxiu Road and west of Xianghu Lake, with a planned area of 134.4 mu, a building area of 81.68 mu and a total height of 43.85 m. The main part of the project has been completed and it is reported that the new site is expected to open to the public at the end of this year or the beginning of next year.

The design inspiration of the new site comes from the profound culture of Central Plains and the ancient scientific and technological civilization. The design creativity comes from the image of Culture in Heluo Area.

From the perspective of appearance, the curve shape and the change of the strength of the new site seem like an engine's propeller and a flying bird. It has a strong sense of science and technology which implies the prosperity of Henan and the rise of the Central Plain.
