Based on practical requirements of its educational pursuits, in sorting out the valuable material evidence and historic memories about the transition from traditional to modern aesthetic values reflected in the changing social lifestyle, Polus International has in effect created an eco-museum alongside campus development. With approval from Chengdu Municipal Cultural Bureau and under the guidance of Sichuan Cultural Relic Administration, the College started building the five on-campus eco-museums – Western Sichuan Classic Furniture Museum, Nügong Craft Museum, Modern and Traditional Hair Art Museum, Traditional Remedial Techniques Museum, and Contemporary Clayware Museum – recapturing the evolution of traditional lifestyles in Chengdu.

In the pieces of broken objects and fragments of craftmen’s memory subsided in the evolution of lifestyle, Polus International College feels the beauty of life embedded in the subtleties of daily trivia permeating through the progression of human life. Such objects and memories are a branch of the ba-shu (Sihcuan) cultural stemmata, and is part of the collective ‘Chinese memory”. They are elements of the intangible cultural heritage of Chengdu that evolves over time, and is passed on through oral impartation. This heritage is embodied in the dexterity and creativity of the people of Chengdu, and is reflected in the cultural embraciveness and empathetic sensitivity present in their soul. It is a source of inspiration to further enrich the beauty in life for the future. We thus feel the responsibility to protect and preserve this heritage with a respectful and grateful heart.

Polus International College upholds its educational philosophy of "improving quality of life through beauty and health", and is making incremental efforts to activate the life and memory of intangible cultural heritage through innovative measures of conservation. Completion of the museum requires leadership from the government, guidance from scholars and supports from the public. Currently, the College is engaged in sorting, categorizing and studying its collections, and will exhibit them in different phases, thus meeting the cultural demand and aesthetic expectations of our visitors.
