China builds museum on industry before 1940s

Wednesday January 12, 2011 03:40:35 PM, IANS

Beijing: China is building the country's first industry museum that would show exhibits used in factories before the 1940s.

The museum is being built on the site of China's first cement plant with mechanised production lines in Tangshan, an industrial city in Hebei province, a spokesman with the city government said.

The museum, along with a creative industry park, would cover 63,000 square metres and cost 350 million yuan ($53 million), Xinhua quoted Chen Guoying, mayor of Tangshan, as saying.

Visitors to the museum would get the chance to experience the set up of old industrial buildings, cement kilns, power plants and shower rooms used before the 1940s, the spokesman said.

As an industrial base dating back to 1840, Tangshan was home to China's first mechanised coal mine and first standard-gauge railroad.

It also produced the country's first steam locomotive and first piece of toilet porcelain ware.
