China's Palace Museum exhibition opened to the public at Acropolis Museum in Athens from Sept. 14, 2018 and lasted to Feb. 14, 2019. Emperors' formal dress, seats, antique screens, and calligraphy works were exhibited at the museum.

Also on Sept. 14, the Antikythera Shipwreck exhibition opened at the Palace Museum in Beijing. The exhibits include ancient relics recovered from a ship that sank in the Aegean Sea more than two millennia ago.

Greece's National Museum of Contemporary Art, or EMST, in Athens has also been building new bridges of intercultural dialogue with China as part of a wider Sino-Greek effort to bring the two countries and their people closer.
