Treasures Filling the Hall - Exhibition of Ancient Life in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province
Date: January 20, 2017 - May 21, 2017 Time: 9:00—17:00 (closed on Mondays) Venue: Hall M, B1, Capital Museum


From ancient times, Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei Province have been closely connected due to their geographical adjacency. The origin, deepness, relation, uniqueness and brightness of the culture in these three places are fully explained by the inheritance of the core values of traditional Chinese culture, and the ideas and art which the people are pursuing. Just as the saying goes, "Each place has its own way of supporting its own inhabitants." With the same origin of culture, the three places share familiar characteristics in people's dreams and lifestyles.

The rites of ancient life represent the principles and norms that people abided by, which they believed could make their lives more harmonious; the creation of artworks stands for the people's aspirations for beauty, and embodies their wisdom in life and their sublimated spirit of art. Ubiquitous happy blessing in their life manifests their fine wishes for the future. Nobleness, affluence, luck and happiness became people's yearnings at that time.
