Chinese revolutionary museum fascinates visitors

Jinggangshan, Jiangxi province: Jinggangshan, the heartland of the early revolutionary activities of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in east China's Jiangxi province, is currently attracting hoards of visitors.

Jinggangshan was home to the CPC's first rural revolutionary base established in 1927. Today, it's a nice small town surrounded by hills with a population of about 147,000.

Deputy Mayor of Jinggangshan, Jiangxi province, Ms Liu Pinghong ( centre ), on Monday introduces the city to visiting journalists.

Deputy Mayor of JinggangshanMs Liu Pinghong told journalists from home and abroad on Monday that almost 1 million visitors come to Jinggangshan every year.

“More and more people visit the city to see the Jinggangshan Revolution Museum; they come here to learn about the revolution and the surrounding historical events,” she said.

Half of the income earned by Jiangxi province comes from historical sites and the province plans to offer more tourist attractions in the near future.

The museum is the first local revolutionary museum in China. It opened on the 10th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China in October 1959. The name of the museum was inscribed by comrade Zhu De.

The museum fulfills the glorious responsibilities and missions of publishing and searching the Jinggangshan spirit and managing revolutionary relics, historical data, old revolutionary residences, sites, and so on.

Many leaders of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese central government, like Mao Zedong, Zhu De, Deng Xiaoping, Jiang Zemin and Hu Jintao, have visited the museum.

It is one of China's 100 demonstration bases for education in patriotism.

On October 27, 2007, the new Jianggangshan Revolution Museum, as the No. 1 project of the national bases for patriotism education, was completed.

Li Changchun, one of the important leaders of the Chinese central government, inaugurated the museum.

It covers a total area of 20,030 square metres, with an exhibition hall of 8,436 square metres.

It uses advanced modern technologies of sound, light and electricity to show the hardships in establishing the first rural revolutionary base of China by the predecessors of the proletarian revolutionists led by Mao Zedong and Zhu De.

In May 2008, the Jinggangshan Revolution Museum was listed as one of the first Grade A national museums.
