A Brief Introdution
Hangzhou is the terminal point of Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. The development of Hangzhou is closely linked to the ups and downs of the canal which connects the past and the future. Near the Gongchen Bridge, which is the sign of the southern terminal point of the Grand Canal, there is a grand and unique museum standing erect. That is “China’s Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal Museum”.

As the first large-scale special museum on the theme of canal culture in China, China’s Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal Museum collects, protects, studies canal culture data from all-round direction and many angles through four exhibition halls, which are “digging and change of the Grand Canal”, “utilization of the Grand Canal”, “protection of the Grand Canal (Hangzhou part)” and “canal culture”. It reflects and demonstrates the natural scenery and historical culture of the Grand Canal. At present, the museum collects and exhibits thousands of cultural relics and historical data, fully demonstrating the position and function of the Grand Canal in the history of the development of the Chinese nation.

History & Background
The  museum was officially opened on October 1, 2007, and the name was  inscribed by Qiao Shi(乔石), a famous political leader of China Communist  Party. Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal Museum is China’s only themed museum  with the time-honored Grand Canal.
