A farming culture museum in Hebei has been proving popular with visitors since it opened to the public, playing an important role in promoting Chinese farming culture to new generations.
Located in Qinghe county, Hebei province, the farming culture museum was established by the chairman of Qinghe’s Education Funds two years ago.
The museum covers an area of more than 200 square meters, with some 40,000 items in 13 different categories on display. The items on display include agricultural equipment, tools, appliances used for daily life, as well as funeral and wedding objects, according to Zhang Chaoyu, manager of the museum.
The collections in the museum were donated by local residents or bought from flea markets across China, and reflect the lifestyle and culture of the Chinese countryside.
The museum is free to enter, and over the past two years has received visitors from across China.
