The New Walk Museum and Art Gallery is a museum on New Walk in Leicester, England, not far from the city centre.[1] The original building was designed by Joseph Hansom, designer of the hansom cab.[2] Two dinosaur skeletons are permanently installed in the museum �� a cetiosaur found in Rutland (affectionately named George), and a plesiosaur from Barrow upon Soar.[1] Other permanent exhibits include an Egyptian area, minerals of Leicestershire, the first Charnia fossil identified nearby, and a wildspace area featuring stuffed animals from around the world.

The museum opened in 1849 as one of the first public museums established within the United Kingdom[3]

In September 2011, the New Walk Museum expanded its Dinosaur Gallery, reorganizing fossils, adding a new room, and modifying the gallery itself. The opening of the new Dinosaur Gallery was launched by David Attenborough.[4][1] The “star attractions” of the new gallery include the aforementioned Rutland cetiosaur, Charnia and plesiosaur fossils, as well as a Leedsichthys fossil and a piece of the Barwell Meteorite. The new gallery predominantly features on extinct marine reptiles.

Major exhibits[edit]

The Rutland Dinosaur, or George, is the nickname given to LCM G468.1968, a specimen of Cetiosaurus oxoniensis. The fifteen-meter dinosaur, which is among the most complete sauropod skeletons in the world, was discovered in June 1968, in the Williamson Cliffe quarry near Little Casterton and Great Casterton. The skeletal remains have been in the museum since 1975, and the majority of the bones in the display are replicas of the fragile bones unable to be used.[5][6] The Rutland Dinosaur featured on an episode of Blue Peter, and was opened opened by Blue Peter’s Janet Ellis in 1985.

The “Barrow Kipper”, a plesiosaur skeleton excavated at Barrow upon Soar

The Barrow Kipper is a skeleton of an unidentified plesiosaur discovered in Barrow upon Soar in 1851. Originally classified as Plesiosaurus macrocephalus, it was later reclassified as Rhomaleosaurus megacephalus. However, according to Adam Smith and Gareth Dyke (2008), the fossil is actually of another, unnamed genus.[7]

Along with other artefacts, four Egyptian mummies are displayed in the museum, named Pa-nesit-tawy, Pe-iuy, Bes-en-Mut and Ta-Bes.[8]

Discovered by Roger Mason at Charnwood Forest in 1957, the holotype of the Precambrian Charnia masoni is displayed in the New Walk Museum.[9][10]

In 2007, more than 100 pieces of art went on display at the museum, donated by Richard Attenborough.

Exhibitions[edit]

On the first floor of the museum is an exhibition area that changes periodically. Recent exhibits have included a display focusing on the search for Richard III‘s remains, a Wallace and Gromit display, the (now permanent) Attenborough collection of Picasso ceramics[11] and Spirits of War to Hands of Peace, an exhibit of paintings and sculpture on the horrors of war and the power of peace.[12]

National Ceramics Museum of China,a world-class special museum for ceramics opens on Oct.18,2015.Located at Jingdezhen City which is well known as the “Porcelain Capital” because it has been producing pottery for over 1,700 years.

WANGDA undertakes design,manufacturing and installation for all the high-end museum display cases for all the gallerires for China Ceramics Museum.

The renovated China Ceramics Museum now covers an area of 83,000 square meters.Inside the museum are a compound of ancient kiln buildings and a compound of dwelling houses of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). In the ancient kiln workshop, workers can be seen giving technical performances of making ceramics manually to make copies of ancient porcelain. In the dwelling houses of the Qing Dynasty there is an exhibition of the ceramic development history of Jingdezhen and an exhibition of calligraphies and paintings. In the building of folk customs,there is a folk custom exhibition showing the Jingdezhen porcelain industry. The museum has collected over 5,000 items of historical relics.Around 100 items are Class One relics,most of which are products of government porcelain kilns, the porcelains left from the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368) and the samples showing the processing technique of the celadon of the Yuan Dynasty. The celadon pillow with the pattern of dragon and tiger left from the Song Dynasty (960-1279) combines the technique of piercing and picking-up; the celadon vase with the pattern of plums left from the Yuan Dynasty is one of the best among the celadon products left from the Yuan Dynasty; and the celadon big plate, 72 cm in diameter, with the pattern of a sea animal, is a special product produced from the imperial porcelain kiln at that time. The museum also has an exhibition hall of the former kiln site at Hutian, which is affiliated to Pintaozhai (a room for evaluating ceramics), specializing in the study of ancient porcelains.
