Today, let's take a look at China Port Museum in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province.

Founded in October 2014 and located in Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, China Port Museum covers a total area of 51,966 square meters and a construction area of 40,987 square meters.



With port culture as its theme, the China Port Museum integrates exhibition, education, collection, research, tourism, international exchanges as well as other functions. Embodying internationalism, professionalism and interactivity, the largest and uppermost port theme museum in China has become a cultural base to inherit port history & culture and spread ocean civilization and a cultural fulcrum of the Maritime Silk Road in the new century.



The architectural design inspiration of the museum is drawn from the conch. Its streamline modeling is extremely modern and its metal material reflects the sense of science and technology, shaping a form with a strong taste of the sea. Its landscape design with characteristics of port combines ocean culture with port culture.


These factors combine to express the new image of Ningbo, a creative and booming port city. Its architectural design reveals the new concept of “modern museum” emphasizing smooth, comfortable and open public space. The China Port Museum provides versatile culture, leisure and education services and becomes an important culture complex.



There are totally seven exhibition halls in the museum, namely Chinese Port History Exhibition, Port Knowledge Exhibition, Beilun History and Culture Exhibition, Theme Display of Underwater Archaeology in China, Scientific Exploration of Port, as well as Digital Experience of Ocean, which is a feast of marine culture.
