The exhibition is one of a series of activities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Under the leadership of the Communist Party of China (CPC), the people of the whole city are united in their struggle to forge ahead and make great achievements in economic and social development, according to the exhibition, which is based on the historical context since the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Especially since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, under the guidance of Xi Jinping’s thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, the vast number of cadres and the masses have united and worked hard to make every effort to govern, promote high-quality economic and social development, and strive to create new achievements in the construction of the “Two Leading Areas”.


After the opening ceremony, Tan Zuojun, Tan Chengxu, Xiao Shengfeng, Wang Qiyao and other municipal leaders and representatives of cadres and the masses from all walks of life stepped into the exhibition hall to visit the exhibition. The gallery is like a time tunnel. From “Greeting New China” to “Endeavour to the New Age”, the gallery has attracted the attention of all. We listened carefully to the explanations and from time to time stopped to watch and ask about the situation. For 70 years, our party unites and leads the people of all ethnic groups in their self-reliance and arduous struggle. We are proud of the achievements which Dalian has made in its economic and social development and strides forward with the country’s prosperity and national rejuvenation, and wishes the great motherland prosperity and Dalian a better tomorrow.


The exhibition is divided into eight sections, which are divided into six parts: greeting the People’s Republic of China, the period of socialist transformation, the period of building socialism in an all-round way, the period of reform and opening up, the period of striving for a new era and the great changes in the coastal city. A total of more than 600 pictures, more than 400 objects, more than 60 documents and archives, as well as some precious video materials, are on display, showing the historical changes that have taken place in Dalian since the founding of the People’s Republic of China 70 years ago in an all-round and three-dimensional way. The exhibition focuses on highlighting the Party’s leadership and the characteristics of Dalian. Many archives and pictures are exhibited for the first time, which are very precious, will become a window and platform for citizens to understand the history of the city, approach the memory of the city, and become a base and vivid classroom for studying the history of the Party, the history of New China, and patriotism education.
