More than 600 cultural relics are on display at the museum, which covers an area of 40,000 square meters, nearly double the number of previously shown cultural relics.

The use of high-tech is the highlight of the reopening. Nineteen digital multi-media projects will vividly display the culture of Liangzhu, including the climate change in the Taihu Lake area, the history of rice planting, and the symbols and characters carved on the pottery and stonewares produced in the region.
