CHICAGO (AP) - The Field Museum is announcing plans to open a new permanent exhibition on China.

Museum officials say the Cyrus Tang Hall of China exhibition covers thousands of years of China’s history, from the Paleolithic era to the present. It is scheduled to open next June.

Officials say the exhibition showcase more than 350 artifacts in five different galleries, including pottery, jades, textiles, paintings, burial objects and a puppet theater. It will also include a multimedia presentation telling stories about the people who both made and used the objects.
