The Fenghua Museum, on the premises of the 1986 Culture Square, is modern in style and comprehensive in exhibits. The Museum's main building was the power generation workshop of a retired thermopower plant. During renewal, the architect retained the original elements as much as possible. The museum includes the building, chimney, coal yard, conveying belt, and gallery.
The Museum, winning national top 10 exhibits award by its "Harmony of Mountains and Seas — Fenghua History and Civilization", is the only county-level museum in the honor list this year. This exhibition illustrates the local history, cultural traditions, and folk customs.
Not only does the memory of the city be cherished at the Museum, but also it is taken as a name card for the city's culture. It takes "industrial remains" as the inspiration for the museum layout to demonstrate Fenghua's unique features, making the Museum one of its kind in the nation.
