词数 238 建议阅读时间 3分钟

HAVE you ever wanted to travel back through time and see what life was like at the dawn of man? Well, museums can make history come alive. And one museum in particular can take you on a thrilling journey from the beginning of human culture to the present day.

It is the British Museum. Being one of the largest museums in the world, it is home to over 7 million objects from all the world's continents. While most of us may not have the opportunity to visit London, we can catch a glimpse of (一瞥) the treasures it holds in Beijing. From March 10 to June 10, more than 100 cultural relics will be on display in thePalace Museum (故宫博物院).

Named "Britain and the World", a range of pencil sketches (素描), watercolor paintings, sculptures and many other objects have traveled to China.

There are several Chinese objects on show. But "they were obtained by the British Museum before 1830 mainly by trade," said Ma Jige, deputy director of the Exhibition Department of the Palace Museum.

In fact, there are more than 23,000 Chinese relics (文物) in the British Museum, including national treasures like gems (宝石), artwork and ancient bronze ware objects.

The museum is famed for its exquisite (精致的) Chinese paintings. Picture of Lady Officials(《女史箴图》) by Gu Kaizhi, a top painter of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (AD 317-420), is there. The British Museum also holds 13,700 Buddhist records from the Dunhuang Grottoes (莫高窟) in Gansu Province.
