Construction of the museum began in March 2015.  It is being built opposite the Aili Hotel, in the planned (2017) ‘NZ suburb ‘in the north of Shandan City.    It will replace the present ‘old museum’, located in the centre of the city.  It is planned to open December 2017.

The new museum will house the stunning collection of artefacts collected by Rewi Alley, and bequeathed by him to the city of Shandan.   The artifacts come from surrounding countryside.  Rewi  found many of them as he explored or in farmed areas of land.
