Liangzhu Museum but translated to be the Culture Musem of Liangzhu, due to the inscription of Jiang Zemin, the former president of China. Liangzhu culture belongs to the prehistoric and Neolithic culture highlighted with its large-scale excavations of the marvelous jade-wares, and the reappearance of the primitive agriculture and people’s lifestyle in the region of Yangtze River Delta. The museum was completed in March, 2005, and opened on Sept 29, 2008. Furthermore, this is a rarely-seen archeological culture museum nationwide, and designed exquisitely by David Chipperfield, a highly-regarded architectural designer in Great Britain.

Liangzhu Culture Museum dedicates to display “Liangzhu Culture”, an influential school of ancient Chinese culture prevailing at the lower reaches of the Yangtze River in the late Neolithic Period about 4,000 to 5,300 years ago. Set against rustic surroundings, this museum blends into its surroundings harmoniously and is compared as a “treasure box” due to its rich collections.

Embodied by rice cultivation, jadeware, silk harvesting and ceramic production, Liangzhu Culture, which originated in Liangzhu Town, is also dubbed as “the dawn of civilization of mankind”. Relics excavated here testify to its glorious past and enduring legacy. The rice seeds unearthed here serve as irrefutable proofs to China’s self-acclaimed rice cultivation history dating back over 5,000 years ago.

Among its treasure trove of lacquerware, porcelains and myriad artifacts, jadeware items outnumber the rest and enjoy peerless consummate craftsmanship. Few places in China have such a complete collection of jade items, which come in great variety and span a history from tribal society to the last century. You can also see a giant oil painting here. Spanning 6.6m high, 35m long, it depicts the daily life of Liangzhu people’s ancestors several millennia ago.

Liangzhu Museum and its surrounding properties development

Liangzhu Community is a part of Yuhang District, the largest district of Hangzhou, the whole city building and construction is centering on this museum. The properties development here is unprecedentedly blooming. The real estate is a considerably important section of Yuhang’s finance. Why? Because this is the most expensive area in Yuhang, and the price of the apartment is similar to the houses in downtown Hangzhou. The buyers are mostly the millionaires, billionaires. To be frank, the millionaire in Hangzhou is the poor or the medium class. The local peasant is richer than them. Most of the peasants are the new rich, because they profit very much when the government has a requisition of the land. Each family will get a compensation over millions of RMB, and also several big houses or apartment in the downtown area. These great benefits make the new immigrants feel so bad and disappointed. It is an inequality or some regional discrimination.

Anyway, this is a big talk to a great degree, Liangzhu Museum is a landmark in Yuhang, even Hangzhou, but it is also an advantageous source of advertisement to promote the regional properties development. Though the glories of the Liangzhu culture let China be a country with a longer history and greater culture, but the wrong use of the source by the government and the property developers, also brings this museum a negative influence in the mind of the public. This is history museum of primitive culture and the modern city construction, and exhibits bilateral aspects of the realities in Hangzhou, a greatness of the past and the abuse of the history.
