Permanent display of exhibits from Expo

A permanent exhibition on the World Expo 2010 will open on September 25 in the former Urban Footprint Pavilion in Puxi with more than 2,000 exhibits from various pavilions on display.

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

The exhibition in one of the five former Expo Theme Pavilions may offer a combined ticket with the star-attraction Saudi Arabia Pavilion in Pudong that will open to the public next month, said Liu Xiuhua, director of the Expo Museum who will take charge of the exhibition.

"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 in and out of the exhibition, so that in time all 14,000 can be seen. 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 in pavilions, Yu said.

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