Chinese Funeral Museum (NEW)


Event Details

  • Date:

The Qingming Festival, also known as Pure Brightness Festival or Tomb-sweeping Day, is the most important day for people to offer sacrifices to their ancestors. To understand the Chinese funeral customs, you will join our guide Janny Chyn to visit China’s only Funeral Industry Museum. The modern, clean and brightly-lit museum offers a fascinating overview of the history of the
funeral business in China. During this guided tour, you will hear everything about Chinese funeral culture, hear amazing stories and funeral history which few people could ever have the chance to know. This is an exclusive offer as the mysterious museum does not list
regular opening hours, because there aren’t any. Entrance is not easy. An advanced and complicated appointment is required to get access and it is crucial to get a guided tour from a funeral culture expert for this unique and amazing experience.
