The Tang Dynasty is considered the golden age of ancient Chinese society. The prosperous Zhenguan Reign (627-649) and Kaiyuan Reign (713-741) were the peak periods of the dynasty, as well as some of the most prosperous periods in China’s feudal history.
At that time, China was the world’s most developed economy and strongest state, and carried out more exchanges with the outside world than any other society. The beauty of its cultural relics, the richness of its music and dance, the diversity of its cultures, and the new changes to the social system during the Tang Dynasty are unmatched by any other dynasty.

The exhibition will end on May 19, 2019. The fare is 30 yuan ($4.4) for adults, and certain people can receive discounts or enter free of charge.
