Capital Museum & Capital Library

China, an East Asian country is one of the world’s oldest civilizations. It has a vast cultural history of more than five thousand years and an outstanding natural beauty. On the other hand, this country has remained a comparatively isolated and secluded one, and being a land of mystery, this country is not known to the western half of the world. However, China is rapidly developing and has grown in the phase of modernization, with an immense speed and is also welcoming the outer world to interact and do business with them.
The Capital Museum is located on the grounds of the Confucius Temple to the southeast of the Andingmen Gate. It houses a permanent exhibition that includes more than 1,000 artifacts depicting the 3,000 year history of Beijing. The museum also displays numerous archaeological objects unearthed in the greater Beijing area which include bronzes, vases, stone inscriptions and documents. Within the same Confucius Temple complex is the Capital Library, which was originally founded in 1913 by Lu Xun, the forefather of modern Chinese writing, as the Metropolitan Popular Library. The library contains around 5 million books and 4 million periodicals and newspapers, of which over a one third are in foreign languages.
