Chinese Funeral Museum


Event Details

  • Date:

The Qingming Festival (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, our guide Janny Chyn will show us China’s only Funeral Industry Museum. The modern, clean and brightly-lit museum offers an overview of the funeral business in China. During this guided tour, you’ll begin to understand Chinese funeral culture, hear amazing stories, and learn funeral history. This is an exclusive offer as the museum does not list regular opening hours and finding the entrance is not easy. An advanced and complicated appointment is required to obtain access and it is crucial to take a guided tour from a funeral culture expert for this unique experience, which is well worth the effort.
