Sanya recently began designing a new city museum, with the intension of turning it into a famous landmark and hub for Sino-foreign cultural exchanges.

The construction team consulted the National Institute of Cultural Development at Wuhan University and experts from the Hubei Provincial Museum and received professional advice on building and displays.

Sanya is a multi-ethnic city where Li, Miao, Hui and other ethnic minorities live together. It boasts prehistoric cultural relics and plenty of ethnic intangible cultural heritage items.

Wang Jianglong, project manager of Sanya's culture center, said the construction team would draw up more precise plans in accordance with the urban development strategy based on expert opinions.

The city museum will focus on quality above all else to achieve its goal of becoming a Sanya cultural treasure and urban landmark. It will also enrich the cultural value of the China (Hainan) Pilot Free Trade Zone and a free trade port with Chinese characteristics currently under construction.
