Set up in 1958, the Luoyang Museum is located in the downtown area of Luoyang, next to Wangcheng Park.
The museum covers an area of over 20,000 sq m, with a floor space of nearly 10,000 sq m. The main exhibition building reflects ancient Chinese architectural style.
Besides preserving and exhibiting its collection of over 400,000 items, the museum also serves as an institute of research and education. In addition to bronze, pottery, porcelain, gold, silver, jade and stone wares, the museum houses imperial treasures from the Ming and Qing dynasties, ancient calligraphic works and paintings, and folk art objects. The cultural relics range from the Old Stone Age to modern times.
The museum's key permanent exhibitions are "Historical and Cultural Relics of Luoyang" and "Selected Cultural Relics of Lunyang." In addition, it has held exhibitions in Japan, Germany, France, Singapore and South Korea, which were well received.
