On April 9th, reporters from CRI journeyed to the 32th Luoyang Peony Culture Festival in Henan province; their first stop was the Luoyang Museum. The exhibits amazed CRI foreign reporters, especially Uruguayan reporter, Laura Olivera Sala and German reporter, Sabrina Sicking, both of whom were there for the first time. They were all very excited to see these exhibits, which documented Luoyang's long history and rich culture. Sabrina said, "This is a good place to start one's journey to Luoyang."

Luoyang Museum is not only one of the earliest first-class museums established in China, but also a regional comprehensive historic museum. Luoyang Museum is the city's only comprehensive historic museum. It is home to nearly a thousand exhibits, which include a 50,000-year-old elephant fossil, faiences dating back to the Neolithic Age, bronze wares made during the Xia, Shang, and Zhou dynasties, painted potteries and terracotta figurines from the Han and Wei dynasties and colorful pottery figurines from the Sui and Tang dynasties.
