The Xi'an Qujiang Pizza Hut Tang Dynasty Museum restaurant opened earlier this month, built in conjunction with the Shaanxi History Museum. This is the first restaurant in China that offers a museum experience.
Huang Jian, general manager of Pizza Hut Xi'an, and Cheng Xu, deputy curator of the Shaanxi History Museum, hosted the opening ceremony together. In the future, the two sides will work together to spread oriental aesthetics and pass on history and culture. In addition to displaying items from the Shaanxi History Museum in a new way, the restaurant will hold family activities. The restaurant's guides trained by the museum will explain the historical and cultural elements of the Tang Dynasty.
Qujiang Pizza Hut's building has a strong ancient Tang style. It’s inspired by the colors of ancient Chang'an's prosperous Tang architecture.
"More and more young people are regaining their confidence in traditional Chinese culture. Such a Pizza Hut restaurant is undoubtedly in line with the times,” Cheng Xu said.
"Our brand has the responsibility to integrate cultural heritage into the restaurant experience,” Huang Jian said.
