The new Yangquan Memory·1947 Cultural Park in Yangquan city in North China's Shanxi province recently completed construction of its main structure and started on its interior decoration and exhibition preparations.
The cultural park is located on the original site of the water pump factory in Nanzhuang Road and covers an area of 96,600 square meters. It is being built and will be operated by Yangquan Cultural Tourism Investment Co.
The company renovated the old factory buildings and built a city memory theme hall, central park, the Quan Art Museum, a temporary exhibition hall, an auditorium, a pedestrian street and supporting infrastructure in the cultural park.
Among the structures, the city memory theme hall is divided into four venues themed around memories of Yangquan, local industries, childhood, past life and the revolutionary history of the Communist Party of China.
Zhao Min, deputy director of investment and operation department of the company, said that the hall's highlight was the reproduction of historical scenes in Yangquan, including local landmark buildings and streetscapes from the 1970s to 1990s.
