Recently, a list of the third batch of second and third class national museums was announced by Chinese MuseumAssociation. 97 museums were selected as second class national museums and 86 as third class museums. This is the first time for university museums to be incorporated into the rating system by the National Cultural Heritage Administration. SDU Museum is the only second class nationalarchaeological museum among university museums.
The ranking of museums is the most comprehensive and authoritative remark for museums. Policy support will be given to the selected museums in terms of project guidance and personnel training. Only two universitymuseums in the country, one in historical archaeology and the other science and technology, have the honor to be selected as the second class national museums.
At present, there are 130first class national museums and 286second class national museums nationwide.The selection ofSDU Museum as National Second-Class Museums has fully demonstrated its profound strength among national university museums.
