The Yangquan Museum will host a grand celebration on May 18 in celebration of this year's International Museum Day. The event aims to raise awareness about the day and promote the museum's free admission policy. Promotional materials, including brochures about the museum and cultural relic protection laws, will be distributed to encourage more visitors to explore and appreciate the local historical and cultural heritage, thus enhancing cultural confidence and pride.

Visitors can participate in a traditional Chinese rubbing activity by scanning a QR code to follow the Yangquan Museum on WeChat or Douyin. This engaging activity allows them to create rubbings and stamp their works with a creative seal at the front desk, providing a hands-on experience of Chinese culture.
