On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party, a new museum dedicated to the history and main achievements of Chinese Communists has opened in Beijing
In July, China marks the centenary of the founding of the Communist Party. In honor of this event, a new museum was opened in Beijing. On an area of 150 thousand square meters. meters, more than 6,000 exhibits reflecting the history of the Chinese Communist Party and the most important events from the glorious past and present, including archival photography from the ceremony of the proclamation of the People's Republic of China by Mao Zedong on October 1, 1949.
The exhibits of the museum are divided into four groups, each of which is dedicated to a certain historical period from the moment of the founding of the party to the present, when Xi Jinping became the general secretary of the Central Committee of the party and the chairman of the PRC. Special attention is paid to the Chinese space program and the coronavirus pandemic.
There are many hidden symbols in the architecture of the museum. So, for example, the building is made in the form of the Chinese hieroglyph “gong”, which looks like a horizontal H. One of the meanings of this hieroglyph & nbsp; – “work”, “labor”. Thus, the very shape of the museum, as conceived by the architects, should testify to the fact that the Chinese Communist Party is the vanguard of the Chinese working class, the Chinese people and the nation. There are 28 columns on the east and west sides of the exhibition hall, symbolizing 28 years of struggle to create New China.
The square in front of the museum is decorated with five large-scale sculptures, including a huge developing red banner, symbolizing the energy and invincible strength of the Chinese people. The four other sculptures, with a total of 276 figures, tell the story of the CCP's 100-year struggle for the well-being of the Chinese people and national revival.
