An exhibition on the culture of the Yangtze River is currently underway at the National Museum of China (NMC) in Beijing. Centered around the theme of “The Mighty Long River,” the exhibition features more than 300 objects that represent the Yangtze River culture.

The exhibition consists of five sections: “The Eternal River,” “Journey of Civilization,” “Ancient Luminaries,” “The Golden Waterway” and “Monumental Projects.” It provides a panoramic view of the history of the Yangtze River as well as people, ecology and projects along it.

The Yangtze River, which stretches over 6,300 km, is China’s longest river. One of the cradles of Chinese civilization, it is the nation’s mother river. The rise and fall of its waters have always had an important bearing on the national economy and the people’s lives.

The exhibition is jointly hosted by the NMC and China Three Gorges Corporation. It kicked off on Dec. 23 last year and will run until late March.
