National Government established national central museum with Cai Yuanpei as the first chairman of board of directors according to proposal of Chinese modern democratic revolution and educationist Cai Yuanpei in 1933. It was designed to start the construction of three exhibition halls for culture, technique and nature in 1936 but stopped for the war. Until the early 1950s, central government repaired and expanded cultural exhibition hall, namely current history exhibition hall. After establishment of the People's Republic of China, it was still called as national central museum led by Ministry of Culture; it was renamed as national Nanjing Municipal Museum in March, 1950, firstly affiliated to Bureau of Cultural Relics of Ministry of Culture, and later affiliated to Culture Department of East China Administration Committee; then affiliated to Bureau of Culture of Jiangsu Province since 1954; consolidated with Nanjing Municipal Museum, Jiangsu Provincial Museum and Relics Administration Committee of Jiangsu Province in the name of Nanjing Municipal Museum in 1959. Since establishment of the museum to 2007, the directors of Nanjing Municipal Museum include: Xu Pingyu, Zeng Zhaoyu, Yao Qian, Liang Baiquan, Xu Huping, and Gong Liang.

Nanjing Museum, the first large national comprehensive museum in China, is located in the south of Purple Mountain, Nanjing City and the south of Zhongshan Gate, taking an area of 70,000m2, with two exhibition halls (history exhibition hall and for art exhibition hall) taking 35,000m2 construction area, both of them being splendid palatial architecture stimulating the architectures in Liao Dynasty, trees and grasses full of the museum decorated by various stone inscription relics, with cultural landscape and natural landscape formed a delightful contrast.

The layout of “six halls in one museum” is designed to build a top-class “comprehensive museum” based on the antique collections of Nanjing Museum. Besides the original Historical and Art halls, other four newly-built halls are the Special Exhibition Hall, Digital Hall, Republic of China Hall and Intangible Cultural Heritage Hall.

The Historical Hall permanently offers the exhibition of “Ancient Civilization in Jiangsu” to illustrate the history of Jiangsu with a great number of historical relics and specimens.

The Special Exhibition Hall comprises ten exhibition rooms to hold temporary or special exhibitions in a bid to show the blending of different cultures and arts. Currently, it is presenting exhibitions of “National Treasure,” “Golden China,” “Great Achievements in Prosperous Times,” “Layout of the Palace in the Qing Dynasty” and “Accuracy and Gorgeousness.”

The Art Hall is composed of eight exhibition rooms classified into the ancient painting, ancient calligraphy, ancient statue and other special themes. Additionally, some special exhibition rooms are established in honor of renowned artists, including the Chinese painting master Fu Baoshi, the Chinese realistic painting master Chen Zhifo and the oil painting master Su Tianci.

The Digital Hall includes the physical and online virtual exhibition rooms, of which the physical one showcases the ancient Chinese civilization, especially Jiangsu’s civilization, based on the human being’s sentiments and the virtual one doesn’t only restore the physical one online but also is built as a permanent “online museum” by integrating intelligence of the audience based on the Internet.

The Republic of China Hall visually displays the civilians’ life during the period of Republic of China with the Nanjing’s local civilization as its theme.

The Intangible Cultural Heritage Hall (also known as Jiangsu Intangible Cultural Heritage Exhibition Hall) doesn’t only briefly introduces the general information of intangible cultural heritage projects in Jiangsu but also dynamically exhibits the bustling folk-custom activities, traditional handicraft and traditional oral performances.
