10. Spring Festival art exhibition

It has been a tradition for the Shanghai Museum to be open throughout the Spring Festival holiday. This year will be no different, and visitors are expected to form long lines outside the museum before it opens at 9 am.

There will be two special exhibitions during the Spring Festival holiday this year, with the largest being the Dong Qichang grand show that features calligraphy and paintings from the collections of more than a dozen museums and cultural institutions.

The second exhibition, In a Myriad of Forms, showcases Chinese lacquer art, which has a history of 7,000 years. The last time the museum put on a showcase of lacquer art was in 1979. Most of the artifacts are being shown for the first time as there are strict requirements regarding the exhibition of lacquer relics in China.
