On the   morning of January 7, the first folk ceramics museum in Wenzhou – the Yongjia   Museum of Ceramics in Spring and Autumn Period (BC770-BC476) opened   to the public.

Founded by   Wenzhouese businessmen Chen Guangwu, Xu Yihan and Xu Xiangmin, the museum   is located in Qianshi Village, Huangtian Town, Yongjia County,   and covers an area of 2,000m2 (at its first phase of construction).  It has a collection of more than 8,000   pieces of ceramics from the neolithic period to the Republic of China. The   collection comes from major ancient kilns in China, featuring ceramics   produced in ancient Ou and Yue countries (Nowaday Wenzhou), and is   distinctive from that of other same kind of museums in China.

"Ceramic   relics are one of the symbols of the Chinese culture,and the best way to show their value is to share   them with the public," said Xu Xiangmin,one of the founders of the museum,at the   opening ceremony of the museum.  From   now on, the museum will not only open to the public for free, but also   organize the relics display tour to communities, schools and so on to   proactively carry forward the ceramic culture.

On the   morning of July 7, the YMCSAP reached a co-construction agreement with local   educational institutions, including Zhejiang Industry and Trade Vocational   and Technical College, and Xiangyu Education Group, and signed a contract for   partner assistance with the Wenzhou Museum.

Xu Xiangmin   said that following the opening of the museum, the YMCSAP will further develop the Ouyue culture industry, Yongjia landscape   culture and Yongjia wine culture, hoping to strengthen, with Ou porcelains   and Ou wine, the construction of a new culture and tourism base along the   Nanxi River, and to integrate a new Yongjia’s specialty alliance so as to   form a Yongjia-featured cultural industrial park with both humanistic and   natural landscapes. At that time, visitors to the Nanxi River will not only   be able to see the ancient Ou porcelains, but also taste a famous liquor   called “Laojiuhan” in Chinese, a quality white spirit distilled from yellow   rice wine (about 50 kg of the wine for 200 - 300 grams of Laojiuhan), so that they   can experience local culture personally.
