Yi Xi Tang Museum

Yi Xi Tang Museum is an ancient ceramic museum jointly set up by Henan Yi Xi Tang Culture Investment Co., Ltd., and Changda Building Decoration Engineering Co., Ltd., under the care and assistance of the Zhouzhuang local government and Jiang Nan Ren Jia. It was established in 2004, over a space of 1,560 square meters.

Ceramics are important treasures inherited from our ancestors. Archaeological statistics show that Chinese people began to produce pottery about 10,000 years ago and porcelain at least 3,000 years ago.

The museum exhibits how the pottery in the primitive age went through a series of changes and turned into modern porcelain in the Yellow River and Yangtze River areas. It comprises six halls to exhibit ceramics in different stages: from the prehistoric era to the Shang Dynasty, Spring and Autumn Period and Warring States Period, the Han Dynasty, the Sui and Tang Dynasties, Song and Yuan dynasties, and Ming and Qing dynasties.

Since the exhibited articles are mainly collected in north China, priority is given to the northern kiln family. The museum presents the hard pottery of the early stage, colored pottery, painted pottery, southern blue pottery of Tang Dynasty, white porcelain of the North, and the top five kilns of Ru, Guan, Ge, Ding and Jun of Song Dynasty.
