“From the Tongji Canal in the Sui and Tang Dynasties, to the bustling Bianhe River in the Song Dynasty, with the changes in the capital in the Yuan Dynasty, the Grand Canal was straightened and rerouted from Shandong to Dadu. This section of the canal has The role of water transport has been lost. In front of the river profile site, Liu Shifa, the director of the museum’s social service department and commentator, gave an in-depth explanation to visitors, “The long years of the Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties were settled into a short section of soil between stratigraphic lines. . “

It feels like being at the bottom of the Bianhe River. Looking up, you can see and feel the passage of time for thousands of years; listening to the explanation, you can hear and know the impact of the changes in the Grand Canal. The audience said that this kind of explanation is informative and interesting; everyone is willing to come and enjoy this kind of museum.

A museum is a big school, and social education is one of the important functions of a museum. Museums in many places in Jiangsu meet the needs of the public and further enrich and expand the educational functions of museums by continuously improving the level of explanations and tours, building exhibition and teaching integration positions, and holding study activities.

  Accurately and vividly, tell cultural stories well

As a landmark project in the construction of the Grand Canal National Cultural Park, the China Grand Canal Museum in Yangzhou is a special museum that displays the world cultural heritage value of the China Grand Canal in the entire basin, at all times, and in an all-round way.

The stories of canal culture are thick and rich, and telling them well is not an easy task.

“Interpreters must undergo training and assessment before taking up their posts. Proficient and accurate explanations are the basic requirements.” Liu Shifa said that professional knowledge training was carried out by the museum inviting experts from universities and cultural and museum systems, as well as archaeologists from the Nanjing Museum who participated in the construction of the exhibition room. The stories behind the artifacts.

Pre-employment training is only the first step. In order to improve the level of interpretation and provide visitors with a better experience, the museum will regularly rate interpreters with stars. “This requires us to learn by doing, accumulate cultural and archaeological knowledge, and add knowledge points and cultural relic stories to the explanations to form a personal style, so as to enhance the attractiveness of the explanations,” Liu Shifa said.

The Bianhe River Section is an innovative attempt by Yangzhou China Grand Canal Museum to “move” immovable cultural relics into the museum. Liu Shifa combined the introduction outline and incorporated ingenuity into his daily explanations, asking visitors to start with the stratigraphic lines on the profile – the strata at the bottom were deep and wide, indicating that the canals were deeper and wider at that time; as they went up, As the strata become flatter and narrower, traces of people's lives appear in the strata, indicating that the river bed has gradually disappeared into the long river of history.

In the “Boat on the Canal” exhibition hall, there is a sand flying boat of the same style that Kangxi sailed to the south of the Yangtze River. Visitors can board the boat to experience the beautiful scenery, customs and customs of the canal along the way from Yangzhou to Beijing. Liu Shifa learned from studying literature that in the late Qing Dynasty, sand flying boats gradually entered the homes of ordinary people and were widely used in folk weddings and opera activities. He taught the newly added knowledge points, allowing visitors to have a deeper understanding of the wisdom of ancient hydraulic engineering and the beautiful life brought by canals.

In addition to more than 10 commentators providing 2,000 explanations each year, the museum also innovatively launches special explanation activities such as director's tours, expert tours, and curator tours, covering the museum's ideas, special exhibitions of cultural relics, and exhibitions. In terms of concepts and other aspects, it explains the cultural connotation of the canal to the public.

Under the influence of the museum's professional interpretation services, some visitors have gradually become participants. Yangzhou China Grand Canal Museum has a team of more than 40 volunteer commentators from all walks of life. “I grew up by the canal. I was just an ordinary visitor at first. The canal stories told by the docents made me more and more interested in the museum and canal culture. After passing the training and assessment, I joined the volunteer docent team.” Ji Hua, a citizen of Yangzhou who works in a university, is the leader of the volunteer commentator team and has conducted more than 80 explanation services in the past two years.

  Highlight the characteristics and explore the combination of exhibition and education

In the West Building of Suzhou Museum, the 4,500-square-meter “exhibition hall” located on the first floor of the basement does not contain a single cultural relic, but it has become the most popular place in the museum. In 2023, 3,389 social education activities were held here, attracting an average of more than 1,000 visitors every year. 100,000 visitors.

This is an “Exploration Experience Center” built for children aged 3-12 years old. Lu Jian, director of the Suzhou Museum’s Public Education Department, said that cultural relics exhibitions in traditional museums are mainly designed for adults. As a place for lifelong education, museums also need to reach children so that they can receive historical and cultural influence from an early age. In 2021, Suzhou Museum will use the concept of building a “museum school” to build a social education position for children to help children strengthen their connection with the museum.

Without a cultural relic, how can children experience history and culture? Suzhou citizens Liu Silei and his son Xu Zijia discovered many surprises during the visit: in the “My Gusu City” unit, you can “travel” to ancient times and experience a day's life in Gusu City – in the morning, carrying a schoolbag Going to the hall, I felt the emphasis on culture and education; at noon, the boat sailed to my grandma’s house, and Suzhou dialect nursery rhymes flowed from the radio in the bedroom; at night, there was peek-a-boo in the alley, and deep in the alley more than 1 meter high, the children really behaved like children. Enter Suzhou gardens, former residences of famous people, and experience history and culture firsthand.

Not only that, there are also 3D printed cultural relics hidden in an archaeological sand pit under Panmen. Children can become “little archaeologists” and experience archaeological treasure digging. Xu Zijia dug up the “Three-legged Liang Liang” and the “Three-Colored Mandarin Duck Flat Pot”. After the experience, he happily took his mother to the “Pure Jiangnan” – Suzhou History Exhibition Hall on the first floor to view these two items up close. artifacts.

Such characteristic exhibition halls are not only found in the Suzhou Museum. Many places in Jiangsu are exploring the establishment of exhibition and education venues for children: the Changzhou Museum has opened a “pavilion within a museum” children's nature museum, and the China Grand Canal Museum in Yangzhou has designed a “canal fan” for teenagers. “Traces” interactive immersive exhibition hall, Wu Cultural Museum has opened the “Wu Feng Exhibition Hall” suitable for teenagers to visit and experience.

  Based on needs, run walking classes well

“Look, this is a photo of me participating in a jade carving activity…” Last summer, 9-year-old Zhang Letong participated in the “Museum Adventures: Adventures in Search of Su” summer camp organized by the Nanjing Museum. She opened the photo album and her memory was still fresh.

Gao Mengchen, deputy director of the Social Services Department of Nanjing Museum, said that every winter and summer vacation, Nanjing Museum holds research and development winter camps and summer camps. The children participating in the activity were not only from Nanjing, but also came from other places.

How is the event schedule arranged?

On the first day, we visited the permanent exhibition “Ancient Civilization of Jiangsu” at the Nanjing Museum, where we focused on understanding the cultural relics of the Neolithic Age through blind box drawing and puzzle solving. Zhang Letong became very interested in “Cong” with the facial patterns of gods, humans and animals. To her surprise, the next day, the R&D team came to the “home” of this cultural relic – the Sidun ruins in Changzhou.

“We saw many workers excavating layer by layer on a “large construction site.” In the temporary display area of ​​unearthed cultural relics, there were many pottery and jade articles. They were different from those usually seen in museums. Some are still fragments.

Liu Yuxin, the leading teacher and social education specialist of Nanjing Museum, introduced to the children that these unearthed cultural relics all belong to Liangzhu Culture. One of the representative artifacts of Liangzhu Culture is jade. Later, in a study classroom, the children under the guidance of the teacher , imitate the patterns on the “Cong with Gods, Humans and Animals Face Patterns”, experience the process of carving jade by ancient craftsmen, and appreciate the exquisiteness and ingenuity of traditional craftsmanship.

Finally, the research and development tour team came to Yangzhou and visited the Tangcheng ruins in Yangzhou along with cultural relics such as the “Tang Sancai Pisces Vase” and “Tang Female Figurines”. During the experience session, Zhang Letong and his friends also put on Tang costumes, good-looking hair styles, and elegant Tang makeup.

Studies are also open to adults. Over the weekend, Nanjing citizen Yang Jie participated in the “Six Dynasties Culture and Archaeological Knowledge” research activity organized by the Nanjing Museum. “There is a stone carving park near my home. I have visited it before, but I have never learned about it as deeply as the research.” Yang Jie said that in two days, they visited the Six Dynasties stone carvings around Nanjing and Danyang. The staff of the museum took everyone to visit the stone ward off evil spirits, stone pillars, and stone tablets to “salvage” archaeological information hidden in the long river of history, allowing them to better understand the history and culture of their hometown.

Gao Mengchen introduced that in addition to organizing research and development based on its own characteristics, the Nanjing Museum has also established natural science research and development activities through museum-school cooperation, and organized explorations of ancient astronomical history, natural beauty, and ocean wonders with observatories, botanical gardens, underwater world and other units. We will organize various study activities for different ethnic groups such as tours, and run walking classrooms well. Last year, Nanjing Museum held a total of 968 activities of various types, with more than 870,000 participants.
