- This six-hall museum traces the history of sports in China over the past 5,000 years with a collection of cultural relics, photos, paintings, trophies and medals. On display in the Ancient Sports Hall are exhibits portraying sporting activities in imperial China, while the Contemporary Hall traces sporting development from 1840-1949. The three modern sports halls, which constitute the main body of the museum, outline achievements since the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. The spiraling structure of the museum also shows off the unique variety of the sports of the country's 56 ethnic groups, including Mongolian wrestling and Korean seesawing and swinging.
