The Memorial for the Site of the Second National Congress of the Communist Party of China in Shanghai is currently under renovation and will be ready for the 100th founding anniversary of the CPC in July.

The memorial is built on the site where 12 CPC members convened the second CPC National Congress and formulated the Party's constitution - the fundamental guide for all activities in the Party - in July 1922.

Located in Jingan district, the memorial received 500,000 visitors in 2019, according to You Wei, vice director of the memorial.

"The renovation will include repairing the deterioration of exterior walls to guarantee the safety of the heritage while protecting its original appearance," You said.

Newly discovered historical materials and relics will be incorporated into the memorial and displayed to the public in interactive ways, she added.

According to You, another memorial housed on the former site of the Central Military Commission on Xinzha road, Jingan district, is also under construction.

She said experts in military and history have been reviewing and guiding the exhibition outline to best showcase the work and life scenes of the commission in Shanghai from 1925 and 1933.

The restoration of another historical site on Jiangning road, Jingan district, where the secretariat of the Central Committee of the CPC worked in the city from 1927 to 1931, is in progress as well.

"The venue will feature pictures, historical materials and interactive interpretation, and create an immersive environment for visitors," You said.
