“My family had a similar herb-pounding stone mortar several decades ago.” “I saw that set of stamps when I was young.” These days, nostalgic exclamations like these can be heard echoing in Renhe Square, Yuhang District, as a special museum named Museum in Light and Shadow put obsolete objects on display, evoking memories of the old days among visitors.

Featuring an interactive and immersive exhibition, the Museum in Light and Shadow has been on tour for many years in Hangzhou since its inception in 2019, leaving footprints in many places, including Hubin Pedestrian Street and Jindi Plaza. The Museum is set to build a tunnel of time out of pictures, audio materials and video footage, through which visitors are able to relive all the landmark events in the revolutionary history of Zhejiang Province. On the other hand, the introduction of stardom and pop culture has made the exhibition more than a regular Party history learning process, but a high-profile social experience that has brought about a significant influx of visitors.

This time, the Museum came to Renhe Square in Yuhang District and saw a retained popularity. Since it opened on the morning of July 16, the Museum has received an endless stream of local visitors.

What stand out at the exhibition are old objects such as vintage telephones, old-style kettles, and kerosene lamps; all of them are precious objects attached to a revolutionary past, and many are possessions of local villagers. Before the stands are visitors absorbed in the display, occasionally striking up a conversation with people around them when they capture the sight of something familiar. There is a widely shared feeling among visitors as if they were thrown back to a few decades ago just by taking a look at these old objects.

The Museum relies on digital imaging technology to offer a unique visiting experience. The moment visitors enter the Museum, they will find themselves surrounded by historical events presented in the form of light and shadow, which reflect the remarkable journey Zhejiang has taken in the past century. The exhibition also includes outstanding works of fine arts created by renowned artists, who in their respective historical periods, described China’s revolution and development over the past 100 years.

For Hangzhou Qianjiang Economic Development Zone, one of the main organizers, holding the exhibition is a boldly new approach to advancing Party history education for the general public. In the future, it will continue expanding the toolkit for effective Party history education and incorporating more meaningful content into the learning process. All the wisdom and strength drawn from the past century will become a catalyst for the ongoing construction of a high-quality Economic Development Zone and help shape a more prosperous Yuhang in the new century.“光影博物馆” 亮相钱江经济开发区
