The Tibetan Culture Museum has opened in Beijing, and its opening show, entitled "Treasure Mirror of the Snowland", presents a display of artifacts from the plateau's past and present.

The museum opened on March the 28th to correspond with "Serfs Emancipation Day", which was established last year to mark the profound transformation in Tibet over the previous 50 years. Now, let's see what the museum has in store for visitors.

The Tibetan Culture Museum opened to the public on Sunday morning. Housed in the China Tibetology Research Center, the facility is the result of more than three years of extensive work. Its seven halls display over two thousand items. They present an objective, wide-ranging view of the plateau's history and tradition, as well as its contemporary prosperity.

In addition to senior officials from central government, the opening ceremony was attended by leading Tibetology researchers. They are delighted to see a new window being opened on the culture of Tibet.

Dramdul, vice director-general, China Tibetology Research Center, said, "As a researcher of Tibetan origin, I found the exhibition quite remarkable. Of course you can't expect to see the whole of Tibet through a single show. But the items on display allow us to see the essence of Tibetan culture. It is a meaningful experience for those who haven't been to Tibet."

To paint a vivid picture of Tibetan culture, the opening show, "Treasure Mirror of the Snowland", provides live demonstrations in the making of traditional handicrafts. Artifacts, historical documents, and graphics help to give an encyclopedic view of the indigenous cultural tradition, including literature, arts, medicine, architecture, and religion.

The show will remain in Beijing on a permanent basis, for both local residents and tourists from the world over.
