It was raining in Guangzhou yesterday, but it didn’t stop people from visiting their cultural venues and exhibitions that have reopened to the public after about two-months of closure.

A dozen cultural centers in the province, including the Guangdong Museum, the Guangdong Museum of Art, the Sun Yat-sen Library of Guangdong Province and the Guangdong Culture Center, reopened on March 19th.
