The design of the Chinese Medicine Museum follows the specific standards of the International Union of Museums, undertaking three main tasks: documentation, research and education. There are over 2,600 specimens being displayed according to their medicinal functions. The Museum also displays some research results of the University in the areas of safety, authentication, quality control, clinical studies and drug development. In addition, there are two very special statues, the Li Shizhen statue and the acupuncture bronze model.
Li Shizhen was a famous Chinese medicine practitioner in the Ming Dynasty; while the bronze model was a teaching aid for learning acupuncture with its prototype designed as early as in the Sung Dynasty.
