Hefei Science and Technology Museum (Nature Museum) is expected to open to the public in May, 2023, according to local media outlets.
The museum's main body, which is located on the east side of Shuxi Lake in Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone, is about to be completed by the end of this year.
The project started construction in December, 2019. After completion, it will become a new cultural landmark in the city and help promote popular science among local residents.
There will be 11 permanent display halls, a nearly 4,000-square-meter open-air exhibition area, Flying Dome Theater, a 4D theater, a holographic theater, a science theater, and a variety of popular science activity rooms, according to the building plan.
With a circumference of 21 m, a viewing angle of 162 degrees, and a height of 16.6 m, the museum's Flying Dome Theater will provide guests with a simulated flying tour.
