The Tibetan Medicine Heritage Innovation and Industry Development Forum was held recently in Xining, Qinghai. It is learnt that after five years of construction on the 30,000-square-meter complex, the second phase of the Qinghai Tibetan Culture Museum was unveiled on November 9, which means that China's largest Tibetan medicine-themed museum has expanded into a comprehensive museum that displays all aspects of Tibetan culture. The first phase of the Qinghai Tibetan Culture Museum (also known as the Qinghai Tibetan Medicine and Culture Museum) was completed in 2005.
China's comprehensive Tibetan culture museum
The second phase of the museum includes the Silk Road and Civilization on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau Hall, the Tibetan Architectural Art Hall, the Calligraphy Art Hall, the Tibetan Carpet Hall, and the Clothing Hall. In addition, the "Treasure of the Museum" --- Painting of China's Tibetan Culture, which once received the Guinness World Record, has also been moved to the second phase museum. The painting is 608 meters long and called “the encyclopedia of Tibetan culture”.
"What can be found here is not only tradition, but also science," Wu Tianyi, an academic with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Chinese Academy of Engineering, commented.
Ai Cuoqian, director of the Qinghai Tibetan Culture Museum and president of the Qinghai Tibetan Medicine Society, said that the second phase of the museum has greatly improved the museum's facility and its cultural level. The layout of the first phase of the museum is based on Tibetan medicine culture, and the second phase features overall Tibetan culture. In future, it will play a greater role in enhancing the soft power and international influence of the Tibetan culture as well as the Chinese culture.

Dear Ms. Ho***,
Greetings from Helen at Budget Tibet Tour and welcome you to join our 10 days Mt. Everest & Namtso Lake group tour. For your questions: 1. Your kids are suitable for this tour. Travelling in Tibet is as safe for kids as it is for their parents. While the high Tibetan plateau may be the highest place on the planet, very often, the kids that visit this region are more adaptable and have fewer problems than their parents. We also have arranged wonderful Tibet tours for many families with kids such as a tour to EBC for a family with a 3-year-old son, a 9-year-old girl and a 11-year-old boy, they did have fun in Tibet and there is no problem for them. Or you can take some medicine under the guidance of doctor to prevent high altitude before enter Tibet. 2. If kids travel with you, we'll offer some discount for them, please check your email and find more detailed information. Thanks & Regards
