BEIJING, Nov. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- A museum dedicated to Shimao culture, which is an archaeological site with a stone-built city dating back approximately 4,000 years, opened to the public on Wednesday, showing the important value and the unique position of the Shimao culture in the origin of Chinese civilization.
Shimao Museum, located in Shenmu City, northwest China's Shaanxi Province, covers an area of 12,890 square meters. It displays a collection of 688 pieces or sets of artifacts unearthed at the Shimao site and those related to the Shimao culture, including jade, stoneware, pottery, bone tools and colorful murals, in an exhibition area of 5,943 square meters.
