An exhibition about the history of Shanghai university museums was held at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom from July 18 to 22.

Titled The Oriental Pearl: Overseas Exhibition of Shanghai University Museums, the exhibition tells the stories of museums at five Shanghai universities-Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Fudan University, Donghua University, Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the Shanghai Theater Academy.

"The exhibition acts as an open and diverse platform to boost cultural exchanges between Shanghai and Manchester, and to bring Chinese culture to the world," says Hu Hao, director of the publicity department of the Party Committee at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, the organizer of the exhibition.

Hu says that cooperative ties between China and the UK are vital, and expresses the hope that the British people will learn more about Chinese culture through the exhibition.
