The Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University Museum (“the Museum”) is located on the first floor of the Central Building, adjacent to the Circular Meeting Room. It was designed by the students and faculties at the University. Officially opened in October 2014, the Museum covers a total of 400 square meters. It is designed to showcase XJTLU’s innovative approach to higher education development and employs state of the art, multimedia technology in order to provide an immersive and engaging experience to our visitors.
The XJTLU Museum is not a specific, singular museum space but an integration of campus culture with the museum exhibitions through the “Museum +” model where faculty, students, and community collaborate based on the concept of “the whole campus is a museum”.
