Since July 31, Hangzhou has adjusted the opening hours of 52 municipal-level state-owned museums all over the city. Among them, 28 museums are open to the public on Monday.

By the end of 2022, Hangzhou had built 11 theaters (including provincial-level theaters). More and more repertoires would be premiered in the major theaters of Hangzhou. This can not only drive the development of local culture, but also promote the cultural tourism consumption of surrounding areas.

The urban cartoon & animation industry is thriving.
