A photo exhibition of cultural relics from the red revolutionary years has just begun at the Military Museum of the Chinese People's Revolution in Beijing.

Pictures of more than 300 cultural relics are on the display at the event, which will run through the end of October. The exhibition, co-organized by the military museum and China Cultural Relics News, is to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of New China.

The exhibits include pictures of the earliest Chinese version of The Communist Manifesto in 1920, of enemy weapons captured by Chinese soldiers during the War Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45) and of Communist leaders' personal belongings.

The photos also showcase many historic moments from the past seven decades -- like the production of China's first automobile in 1956 and a 1964 newspaper article reporting the testing China's first atomic bomb.

According to the National Cultural Heritage Administration, there are over 1 million registered cultural relics nationwide, which are witness to recent Chinese history.

And the organizers of the ongoing exhibition said that a digital exhibition of more revolutionary-themed cultural relics would soon go online. A similar offline exhibition is also set to tour the country's museums.
