This newly curated exhibition will highlight the achievements of digitisation projects of the Dunhuang Academy, together with a presentation of unearthed artefacts, the grotto art of Dunhuang, and the latest multimedia technology, to allow visitors an opportunity to study Dunhuang culture up close and appreciate the stories of the Buddhist realm and the ordinary people.

Technology plays more and more important role in the cultural heritage conservation. The Dunhuang Academy is a pioneer in the field among the cultural institutes in Mainland China and has made substantial achievements in digitisation, 3D scanning and virtual reality representation of the Dunhuang relics, not to mention its accomplishments in promoting the cultural heritage of Dunhuang through internet and multimedia programmes. The exhibition will showcase over 100 exhibits including the replica cave of Mogao Cave 285, virtual caves, a digitised monumental mural of Mogao Cave 61, Mount Wutai, artefacts and archives, interactive multimedia installations and audio-visual programmes, to offer a unique museum experience that allows visitors to learn about the history and art of the Dunhuang Caves.

During the exhibition period, a mini display on Dunhuang music culture will be held in the Function Place on the first floor of the Museum.
