Feature: When a "mobile museum" visits a special school

Editor: huaxia

Excitement was in the air at a special-education school in northwest China's Gansu Province last week when a "mobile museum" visited the campus.

Students gathered in front of colorful boards placed in the school's playground by the Museum of Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Gansu, which displayed images of treasured items from the museum's collection.

Chen Bingren, head of the museum's display department, was the curator of the one-day exhibition. With over 20 years of working in the museum industry, it was Chen's first time guiding a tour for children with disabilities.

The Gannan special-education school currently has 158 students, including children with hearing loss, intellectual disability and autism. Though many of them have difficulty talking, the curiosity in their sparkling eyes showed that they had a lot to say.

With the help of a sign-language teacher at the school, the discussion between Chen and the students went smoothly.
