Minpaku organizes hands-on workshops and other events throughout the year. For the New Year, Minpaku is preparing an exhibit about the 60-year (12 zodiacal animals times five elements) cycle of the Chinese calendar, using items from Minpaku’s collections and information related to the 60-year cycle from around the world, to provide a deeply interesting learning experience. This New Year why not spend a day at Minpaku, learning more about how people and calendars around the world are connected?
