Sanya’s first folk eaglewood museum opens in Sanya Bay
Sanya’s first folk eaglewood museum, authorized by the Hainan Department of Cultural Relics, opened on May 8th, 2015.
Located opposite of Phoenix Island, the museum covers a land area of nearly 700 square meters. Dozens of Hainan eaglewood specimens and more than 2,000 various natural eaglewood products are on show at the museum.
It takes tens to hundreds of years for eaglewood to be formed. In addition, in natural environments only a small percentage of eaglewood trees produce eaglewood. Hence, eaglewood is rare and precious. Each piece of eaglewood has its own unique fragrance and shape.
The tropical island of Hainan has been producing eaglewood and eaglewood products for over 1,500 years.
The museum will be the largest folk museum in Hainan province, as well as an important base for Sanya’s cultural industry. It is open to the public for free.
