Located at Venue C of the Zibo Culture Center, the Zibo municipal science and technology museum – located in Zibo city in East China's Shandong province - officially opened to the public on Sept 14.
Entrance is free of charge and the opening hours are from 9 am to 4:30 pm every Wednesday to Sunday, while it is closed every Monday and Tuesday. Opening hours on official holidays will be announced by the museum.
Having started construction in 2016 and with a total investment of 150 million yuan ($23.25 million), the museum has a total floorspace of 15,000 square meters over five levels – including one basement level.
The main areas for exhibitions and education are divided into four permanent exhibition halls and one exhibition hall for temporary exhibitions, two decorated galleries, two themed stairs, eight science workrooms, one lecture hall and one four-dimension cinema.
The new museum has reportedly laid great emphasis on intelligent museum construction. Its 28 sets of intelligent systems can provide visitors with integrated, convenient and smart services before, during and after their visits. It does this through collecting and analyzing their interactive actions and behavioral data.
The museum has received more than 80 groups from inside and outside the city since its trial operations started on December, 2020.
Due to the novel coronavirus epidemic control and prevention needs, the museum requires appointments before visits.
