Our online offerings allow you to experience the rich history, culture, and tourist attractions of Wuhan, whether you are in Kuala Lumpur or Wuhan, through virtual exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, and performances.

The Panlongcheng site is one of the most significant and systematically excavated archaeological sites in the Yangtze River Basin. Since its discovery in 1954, archaeological work has continued to this day. The museum is situated in the western part of the scenic park, covering an area of 220,000 square meters, with a building area of 16,300 square meters and exhibition halls spanning 3,800 square meters. The museum’s unique “semi-embedded” design seamlessly integrates the architecture with the surrounding vegetation, making the site itself the main exhibit. From the rooftop of the museum, visitors can enjoy a panoramic view of the core area of the archaeological site, immersing themselves in its historical charm.

Years of archaeological excavations have revealed city walls, moats, palace foundations, noble tombs, and bronze workshops, showcasing the highly developed social hierarchy of Panlongcheng. These discoveries have not only deepened our understanding of the Bronze Age culture in the Yangtze River Basin but also played a significant role in the development of Chinese archaeology.
