Spending traditional festivals at the Traditional Chinese Culture Museum, seated along Beijing's Central Axis, has become a routine for many residents in the capital city.

During the latest Mid-Autumn Festival, visitors to the museum enjoyed a lively public program which rekindled their interest in old-time customs associated with traditional arts and culture.

People were invited to learn mooncake making from seasoned pastry chefs from Daoxiangcun, one of the oldest bakery brands in the country. They also joined in a mini temple fair set up at the museum which offered handicrafts from across the country, including tuer ye, a half-man and half-rabbit clay toy native to Beijing which used to be worshipped during the festival, and highly decorative lamps from Haining, Zhejiang province.

The museum also opened several of its long-term exhibitions to showcase representative intangible cultural heritage items.

The highlight of the celebrations was a concert with traditional musical instruments.
