Museums in the Chinese port city of Tianjin have been witnessing a visitor boom this summer, with youngsters reportedly leading the ongoing cultural tourism craze.

According to a report by Xinhua News Agency, the Tianjin-located National Maritime Museum of China received some 320,000 tourist visits in July. Meanwhile, at the Tianjin Museum, a Xi'an-themed exhibition featuring ancient treasures from the Tang Dynasty (618-907) has recorded over 100,000 tourist visits so far this summer.

Industry insiders believe that the surging museum craze sweeping not only Tianjin but also across China is in line with the growing spiritual and cultural needs of the Chinese people, who are welcoming the chance to experience cultural relics, ancient history and traditional culture.

Accordingly, increasing public curiosity and enthusiasm are also proving a challenge for Chinese museums seeking to do their utmost to embrace new visitors. From providing night tours to creating more interaction between visitors and the exhibits, many museums are finding new and more creative solutions to cope with the upsurge in demand.
