The museum represents the development degree of a city, a region and even a country’s political, economic, cultural and civilization. It carries too much cultural connotation, which is an important part of the knowledge system of universal education and enlightening the mind. It is not only a building, but also a window of a city and a concentrated embodiment of urban culture. If a city has no cultural soul, it will become an empty shell of reinforced concrete; if a city loses its cultural memory, it will become a space without life color.
