These rabbit-themed cultural relics from all over China are rarely on display. New advanced technology used in the exhibition makes it possible for the audience and the on-screen host interact in real time.

Since 2008, the capital museum has hosted activities themed "Spending Spring Festival at the Museum". The exhibition displays the culture of Chinese Zodiac in an informational and interactive way, which helps young visitors understand the Chinese Spring Festival.

The exhibition is scheduled for a month and ends on February 27.
