Built on the sites of Upper Capital of Yuan Dynasty, construction of the museum has taken shape up till now and is expected to complete in June next year.

 

The museum is located on the north bank of Upper Capital River in Plain Blue Banner of Xilin Gol League in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. Xilin Gol League enjoys geographic proximity to Beijing, being the nearest prairie from there.

 

The museum will house more than 200 relics unearthed from excavations of the site and will use modern technology to give visitors a more vivid picture of how the city was built, as well as the life and the culture of the time.

 

The ruins have already been opened to tourists in July this year. These remains are on China’s application list for world heritage status. UNESCO is scheduled to vote for new entries for its world heritage list at the World Heritage Conference next year.
