Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

As China’s first provin­cial level mu­seum of its kind, the new Shang­hai Mar­riage Cul­ture Mu­seum show­cases the his­tori- cal evo­lu­tion of Shang­hai’s mar­riage cul­ture from the Qing Dy­nasty (1644–1911) on­ward and fo­cuses on the de­velop- ment of lo­cal mar­riage cul­ture af­ter the es­tab­lish­ment of the Peo­ple’s Re­pub­lic of China. The mu­seum presents lo­cal mar­riage cus­toms and wed­ding rit­u­als and records the de­vel­op­ment of the city’s mar­riage regis­tra­tion sys­tem in dif­fer- ent eras through texts, graphs, pho­tos, ob­jects and mul­ti­me­dia pre­sen­ta­tions. Di­vided into three sec­tions (Shang­hai mar­riage regis­tra­tion man­age­ment, mar- riage cus­toms and fam­ily dis­ci­plines) the mu­seum fea­tures 137 pho­to­graphs and 236 dowries col­lected over the decades. A va­ri­ety of daily ob­jects that were once com­monly used in al­most ev­ery Shang- hainese house­hold are also on dis­play, in­clud­ing enam­eled wash­basins, a 555-brand me­chan­i­cal alarm clock, glass plates and porce­lain teapots and jars.
