Museum to celebrate Expo spirit

A new museum celebrating the World Expo will be opening in Shanghai at the end of the year.

Bureau of International Expositions chief Vincente Gonzalez Loscertales said the World Expo Museum will also serve as an Expo information center.

“Our duty is to keep the achievement and memory of the World Expo alive,” said Loscertales during a visit to Shanghai, which hosted the 2010 Expo. “The museum will be a training, information and education platform conveying the spirit of Expo.” Loscertales and his team visited the construction site in Puxi yesterday.

“The opening exhibitions will promote the coming World Expos, including the 2017 Astana World Expo and the 2020 Dubai World Expo,” said museum director Liu Xiuhua. “We are also planning to organize some international symposiums with the leading museums of the world.”
