Jilin Provincial MuseumThere are more than 2,000 exhibits in Jinlin Provincial Museum. Generally speaking, its range from Wangfutun Man in Prehistoric Times (one million years before) to the Opium War (1839 - 1842) reflects the historical development of Jinlin Province. Included is a collection of calligraphic masterpieces and paintings by famous Chinese poets and painters in ancient times. The museum also searches for and gathers paintings handed down from ancient times but not collected by the Qing Dynasty government. Additionally, tourists can see jade, porcelain, bronze articles and lacquers. These items were excavated in Jilin Province: iron armor, a bronze board ornament, a pair of white jade earrings and a bronze harness of the Gaojuli People (a frontier ethnic people in northeast China), a bronze mirror with inscriptions of the Khitan People in the Liao Dynasty (916 - 1125), a purple glazed bowl of the Jing Dynasty (1115 - 1234) and a fresco facsimile from a princess's tomb.

Furthermore, the museum exhibits glorious stories of Chinese heroes during the Anti-Japanese War (1937 - 1945). The heroes struggled courageously against Japanese aggressors in northeast China and sacrificed their lives for the liberation of their motherland. These stories reflect a sublime and unyielding spirit.
