Bryophytes exhibition proves popular at Shanghai Natural History Museum
A classical courtyard garden has emerged as a new photo-taking site at the Shanghai Natural History Museum.
It is part of a pop-up exhibition that integrates bryophytes into Chinese poetry, painting, calligraphy and landscape art so as to make bryophytes known to the public, as well as to immerse visitors in Chinese beauty and elegance.
AI painting, AR photo-taking and other advanced technologies are used to improve the interactive experiences.
Bryophytes are a general term for hornworts, liverworts and mosses. There are approximately 20,000 species in the world. Some are commonly seen in potted landscapes and traditional Chinese gardens, often together with cobblestones and artificial hills.
The exhibition is held on the B2 floor, and it will run through October 15.
