A total of 243 precious items from Russia's Peterhof State Museum are being exhibited in Southwest China's Sichuan province.

The items on display at the Chengdu Museum include oil paintings, china, sculptures, clothes and furniture.

The exhibition also features activities such as a Russian costume show and a Tetris game.

The exhibition is among those the Chengdu Museum has held with countries along the Belt and Road to strengthen cultural exchange, according to local authorities in Chengdu.

The display is expected to help people in Chengdu learn more about the history of Russia, said Tamara Nosovich, deputy curator of the Russian museum.

The Peterhof State Museum is one of the most important museums that stores and displays cultural artifacts of the Russian Romanov Dynasty (1613-1917). Peter the Great was the fourth tsar of the dynasty.

The display is free to the public and will be open until August 27.
