More than 26,400 people visited Otago Museum's exhibition
''China's Minority Cultures: Silk to Silver, Collections from
the Shanghai Museum''.
The exhibition featured items from 23 of China's 55
officially recognised minority cultures.
Otago Museum director Dr Ian Griffin said market research
conducted for the exhibition indicated that visitors
considered it informative and engaging, with an average
rating of eight out of 10.
The three-month show, which closed on October 28, was the
first exhibition devoted to China's minority cultures which
the Shanghai Museum had exhibited overseas.
All exhibition items had since been taken down and returned
to the team at the Shanghai Museum, Dr Griffin said.
