Jiading bamboo carving has a 400-year history, dating back to the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644).

The art is full of cultural value and has regional characteristics.

Jiading bamboo carving was included into the first national catalogue of intangible cultural heritages in 2006.

The museum provides a charming journey through the art of bamboo carving for visitors at home and abroad with a full range of treasures. It will also give life to the art form, which is in danger of extinction, by utilizing collection, exhibition and research.
