Shanghai Marriage Culture Museum opens to public
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.
