The China Marxism Museum will open before the end of this year, the museum's sponsor said on Monday.
Sponsored by the Central Compilation and Translation Bureau (CCTB), the museum will feature collections of Marxist works that have been translated and published in China over the last 100 years.
The museum will contain eight sections, each devoted to a different period of Marxist development in China. Photos, sculptures, photographic reproductions of historic documents and archives will be on display, allowing visitors to see how Marxist works were translated and spread throughout China.
Yi Junqing, director of the CCTB, said the museum will be the first of its kind in China devoted to the permanent exhibition of Marxism. It will also detail the stories of translators, theorists and ideologists who made contributions to the ideology's prevalence in China.
The museum is currently open to the media and will later open to the public, according to the CCTB.
