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.
