The rose museum is a great place for visitors to enjoy art installations about flowers!
The world’s first rose museum opened on May 23, 2016, in Beijing, China, in conjunction with the 2016 World Federation of Rose Societies Convention.
The rose museum is a great place for visitors to enjoy art installations about flowers and learn historical theories about ancient roses. The project designers from NEXT Architects have successfully combined the history of China, Chinese culture, and modernity in a bouquet of roses.
Flowers in Chinese Culture
Flowers aren’t just flowers in China. They are part of the culture. Different flowers hold different meanings, and people communicate with one another by expressing their feelings through the cultural attributes of specific flowers. As we look into the culture in a deeper way, we can clearly distinguish the importance of flowers in people’s daily lives.
A Rosy History
Roses are one of China’s traditional flowers. They generally represent love, friendship, peace, eternal spring, and perpetuity. Due to the fact that roses originated in China, there are many ancient and precious rosaceae fossil remains. China has a long rose-breeding history that can be traced back to the early West Han Dynasty, about 2,000 years ago.
When visitors come to the museum, they will see the diversification of rose species in China, learn the early history of Chinese roses, and have the chance to experience the growing environment of ancient roses by joining different rose garden tours available during the convention. Visitors can also breed their own virtual rose and participate in interactive games.
All together over 2,300 species of roses from countries around the world are on display. In an effort control crowds only 200 people are allowed in the museum each day.
Mid May 23- Mid June 18, 9am-6pm
