Nanjing Museum is located at the southern foot of Purple Mountain and the north side of Zhongshan Gate. It is one of the earliest museums in China. Here you can not only see ancient cultural relics such as the gold hazel in Notes of the Tomb, but also appreciate the art of painting and calligraphy, and even walk around the old streets for a through journey.
The museum was built in 1933 and completed in 1948. It was expanded in 2009 and opened to the outside world on November 6, 2013. It has become the second largest museum in China after the National Museum of China, with a total of 6 halls including historical museum, special exhibition hall, digital museum, art museum, republican museum, and intangible cultural heritage museum.
The main building of the museum is divided into two parts on the left and right. After a short walk on the right, it is the old main hall of the museum imitating Dule Temple. It is no longer used for display of exhibits and has become a place for security inspection.
