The Chinese are increasingly exploring cultural relics as a part of their daily lives, Wang Kaihao reports in Chengdu.

No matter which city Ai Xiaoyang visits, museums always top her list of must-see places to know more about the local history and culture.

With Chinese museums showing their creativity in recent years, this veteran museum visitor from Beijing has had a good time.

"Museums are no longer isolated," says the 28-year-old.

"Their abundant souvenirs, interactive facilities and lectures make it easier to learn about the exhibits."

She has downloaded a few phone apps of the Palace Museum in Beijing to get her daily dose of the museum's collections and know about upcoming exhibitions. She has also bought many souvenirs from online stores as gifts for friends.

In mid-September in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, 6,000 souvenirs offered by the Palace Museum were sold out within a day at the 7th Chinese Museums and Relevant Products and Technologies Expo.

More Chinese are seeing museums as a part of their daily lives.
