Rich artefacts excavated across the 12 square kilometers river-front site provide compelling evidences that the Yangtze River, with its numerous tributaries running across the province, has not only been the headwaters of the traditional Sichuan culture but also a cradle of the great Chinese civilization.

Peng Qinghua, Sichuan provincial Party secretary, introduced the Sanxingdui cultural heritage to the Hong Kong society as an important part of Sichuan's profound history at an exchange event in November.

This year's free museum tours that promise fulfilling cultural experiences are originally designed as a way to show gratitude for the warm support from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan in the aftermath of the Wenchuan earthquake that trembled Sichuan province in 2008.

Online travel agencies including Ctrip.com, Meituan.com and Lvmama.com will offer booking service for the free visits. And express entrance service will be available at the museum to cut the time waiting in line.
