Teenagers aged 6 to 15 can apply for free access to the Tongguan Kiln Museum in Changsha this Saturday in celebration of China's Cultural and Natural Heritage Day, which will fall on June 9.

As a major porcelain producer during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), the Tongguan Kiln is well-known for developing a colored glaze technique. Its porcelain products were sought throughout China and Southeast Asia at that time.

A treasure-hunting activity will be held at the museum to help children learn about the porcelain and ancient Chinese culture. Participants can retrieve a task card from the education area, and then find and remember the names of the porcelain exhibits while following picture clues drawn on the task card.

The first child to make it back to the education zone and to finish writing down the full names of the required treasures correctly will be awarded a huge prize.

Other participants who are able to complete the challenge within 30 minutes will also receive special souvenirs.

A total of 30 applicants will be offered this opportunity. The application deadline is 9:30am on June 9. Telephone or on-site registration are both available.
