Hangzhou Museum was officially established in 2012. Based on Hangzhou History Museum, Hangzhou Museum located at the foot of Wushan or Wu Hill and surrounded by the old trees is a famous center of Hangzhou to exhibit the glory of Hangzhou. It was directly changed from Hangzhou History Museum, therefore, in some way, Hangzhou Museum is equivalent to Hangzhou History Museum, and majority of collections and themed exhibitions are not changed at all. For keeping the readability, We still maintain Hangzhou History Museum as the title of article instead of Hangzhou Museum.

Hangzhou History Museum is close to many famous classic sites of West Lake Scenic Area like the Memorial Hall of Lord Wu(Wu Zixu), Hefang Ancient Street, Wushan Square, Ancient Drama Performance Stage, Chenghuangge(City God Pavilion), Dongyue Temple(East Holy Mountain Temple, which is said to be the God of Taoism, named Holy Emperor of Dongyue in charge of the humankinds’ death and birth, felicity and mishap).
