The Jinan Gourd Museum, which is located in Jinan's Zhangqiu district, was recently included in the first batch of village (community) museums in Shandong province.

The museum was established in 2015 and displays various types of gourd artworks.

The museum showcases over 3,000 pieces of gourd crafts created by artists that utilize techniques such as painting, carving, hollowing out, and needle piercing.

Ma Youyi, the gourd museum owner, has been carving gourds for over 20 years and is a provincial-level intangible cultural heritage inheritor of gourd carving.
