A museum of Chinese gardens will welcome its first visitors on May 18, the opening day of the Ninth China (Beijing) International Garden Expo.

After 18 months of construction, the China Garden Museum, located in southwestern Beijing's Fengtai district, is getting its finishing touches with 85 percent of construction completed, said Qiang Jian, deputy director of the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Landscape and Forestry.

"The China Garden Museum will not only present a museum of life to the public, but also unfold the rich cultural fabric of classical Chinese gardens to visitors from home and abroad," he said.

"Tourists can get a general and in-depth understanding of Chinese classical gardens, modern gardens and afforestation skills," he said.

According to Gu Xiaoyuan, a publicity officer of the Fengtai district government, the museum has collected 4,000 exhibits through donations, auctions and purchases.

The museum guides are receiving training to guarantee quality of service when the museum opens in May.

The museum will be free to the public to further boost and popularize Chinese garden culture, she said.
