Exhibition on World Expo opening soon

A trial operation began this morning at a memorial exhibition on the World Expo 2010 that will officially open on Sunday in the former Urban Footprint Pavilion in Puxi.

Tickets will cost 30 yuan (US$4.69), while students, military personnel, senior citizens and children can enter for 15 yuan.

The 20,000-square-meter exhibition to be held for about two years is expected to attract 10,000 visitors per day and twice that much on peak days, said Liu Xiuhua, director of the Expo Museum, which is in charge of the exhibition.

The exhibition will feature a 3-dimensional movie named "Expo Honor." Visitors need to reserve tickets for the film at the entrance of the exhibition center, because the cinema can only accommodate 1,500 visitors every day.

"More than 14,000 exhibits have been collected from over 200 Expo pavilions for the exhibition, which will definitely remind visitors of the 184-day Expo," said Yu Li, chief designer of the memorial exhibition.

Exhibits will be rotated throughout the run of the exhibition to ensure that all 14,000 exhibits can be displayed.

When the display opens, the "Miguelin," the Spain Pavilion's 6.5-meter animated baby, as well as an animated show about the Expo that is similar to the China Pavilion's "Along the Riverside During the Qingming Festival," will be among featured items.

The exhibition also includes 3D movies filmed during the Expo, as they were always among the biggest attractions at pavilions, Yu said.

The exhibition will be open daily from 9am to 5pm, except on Mondays. The China Pavilion, meanwhile, will remain open on October 9 with an admission price of 20 yuan.
