building a museum of stone carving was inspired by the remains of a Vajrasana Pagoda from the Zhenjue Temple. Opening in 1987,it is the first local museum in china that collects stone carving antiques all over Beijing and holds outdoor exhibitions. Through the efforts for more than 20 years, BSCM has made admirable progress in collection, exhibition, research and public education. To keep in step with the latest ideas of international museum management and service, BSCM is exploring new mode of development, digging deep into the culture of stone carving, and experimenting on the inter-action with audiences, so as to provide a better place for art appreciation and the pursuit of humanistic beauty.
