New Museum Being Built to House International Chinese Stamp Exhibition

China's CCTV reports a brand-new museum is being built for The World Stamp Exhibition which will be held between April 10 and 16 in Luoyang, China.

The annual event is held in various cities around the world from year to year and is coming to China for a second time.

According to the report, "The design of the museum building is in the shape of a cauldron...often used in the rituals of ancient China."

It goes on to say, "The exhibition is expected to draw an estimated 600 thousand visitors from China and abroad. The World Stamp Exhibition is under the patronage of the Federation of International Philately. It is an influential event with a hundred-and-fifty-year history."

After the stamp exhibition, the museum will be used to house some one thousand cultural relics unearthed around the city.
