To bridge the gap between the audience and the archaeological sites, the museum also plans to provide real-time updates on the progress of excavations, enabling visitors to virtually meet archaeologists working on-site via video calls. At the same time, archaeological experiences will be arranged to allow visitors to participate in activities, such as piecing together pottery shards and making rubbings, to enhance the overall experience.

The museum is open to the public from Wednesdays to Sundays, and focuses on receiving groups of history and archaeology professionals on Tuesdays. Visitors can reserve entry tickets three days in advance online.

"Through a variety of methods and channels, we aim to turn archaeological achievements into public knowledge, benefiting the people," Gong says.
