Liaoning Provincial Museum is located in Heping District of Shenyang City. It covers and area of total 110,000 square meters. The Center of the Museum is a three-story exhibition hall that was designed by a German architect. In 1988, a new three-story white building was built inside the grounds that include a large hall and a surrounding corridor.
The museum is characterized by its collection of historical artifacts and ancient arts, including some eighteen categories of objects: paintings and calligraphy, embroideries, woodblock prints, bronzes, ceramics, lacquer ware, carvings, oracle bones, celadon, costumes, archaeological material, coins and currency, steles, old maps, ethnic minority artifacts, revolutionary artifacts, furniture, and assorted other items. Among these items, some were excavated and others were passed down from generation to generation. The museum is one of most important museums in China.
The museum also has the collection of painting and calligraphy works by famous artists in Tang and Northern Song Dynasty. Woodblock-print editions include the Ming-dynasty Album of the Ten-bamboo Studio, the first colored woodblock print in Chinese woodblock-print history.
The ceramics collections in the museum are especially famous and valuable. Liao porcelain is unique in the art form for its treatment of colored glazes, but the collection also includes Liao monochromes such as the lovely Liao white porcelain. Many of the ceramic forms embody nomadic characteristics, and the glazes and colors are imbued with local character. Production methods continue the traditions of the Tang and Five dynasties kilns.
Two permanent collections are on display in the museum. One is an exhibit on Chinese history, and the other is a display of stone inscriptions. The former deals with overall Chinese history in general but also takes local Liao history into special consideration. There are total 18 exhibition halls.
