Giant Lanterns of China
December 1 - 28 February 2018
This winter, RZSS Edinburgh Zoo will be home to The Giant Lanterns of China, an installation of over 450 dazzling giant lanterns that will illuminate the Zoo for 50 awe-inspiring nights.
Be wowed by Chinese performers, enjoy wintery hot drinks and snacks and shop in our Christmas marketplace featuring hand-made crafts from Chinese artisans.
The partnership to create the lanterns stems from a long standing relationship between RZSS and Sichuan, the birth place of Edinburgh Zoo’s giant pandas. #GiantLanterns

"I am delighted to introduce our new What’s On guide highlighting
exhibitions and events taking place across the museum and gallery
venues owned by the City of Edinburgh Council.
The latter half of 2017 will see new exhibitions and permanent
displays open in different venues, as well as the temporary closure
of one the most loved city attractions, the Museum of Childhood.
At the City Art Centre, the highly popular exhibition Edinburgh
Alphabet: An A-Z of the City’s Collections continues its run until
the 8th October, following which four new displays will open
spanning art, contemporary craft and architecture.
Fans of Ian Rankin will still be able to see the Rebus30 exhibition at
the Writers Museum, while a new temporary exhibition Our Story at
the Museum of Edinburgh explores the history of Edinburgh’s Faith
Finally, the Museum of Childhood on the Royal Mile will be closing
towards the end of October for around 5 months to allow for an
exciting redevelopment of the ground floor gallery, which will see a
new, multi-media display exploring 150 years of childhood.
We look forward to welcoming you"
- Councillor Donald Wilson | Convener of Culture & Communities
