Beijing museum hosts Expo 2010 exhibition

THE latest and most detailed Shanghai World Expo 2010 exhibition opens today at the Capital Museum in Beijing.

Models of the main Expo pavilions, including some previously not shown, like the Coca-Cola Pavilion, can be seen at the "Expo to Expos" exhibit, said Yu Li, assistant director of the Expo bureau's Communication and Promotion Department and chief designer of the exhibition.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is a 3D film that shows a simulated version of the Expo site and which is being screened for the first time, he said.

The five-minute movie will be displayed on a 160-degree, arc-shaped screen using projection and audio facilities used for the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony.

"Visitors will be amazed by the film," Yu said.

Exhibition visitors will pass through a replica of Beijing's historic Jingdemen memorial arch that once led to a temple used by emperors during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911) dynasties.

Flags of all 191 countries and 48 international organizations attending the 2010 event are erected beside the arch.

The 1,500-square-meter exhibition includes photos and film footage of previous Expos and China's role in them. It takes about 40 minutes to see the exhibit.

The exhibition will open to the public on Tuesday.
