In keeping with the spirit of museum, I spent roughly 2 days collecting tons of news videos on the grand opening of the relocated ITTF Museum and the brand-new China Table Tennis Museum in Shanghai this April.

Quite a few of them feature the former curator and now honorary curator Chuck Hoey. 1 of them is feature-length tour of the Museum with the current curator Shi Zhihao and Double Grand Slam holder Zhang Yining. Thomas Weikert and Jorgen Persson appeared as guests at the grand opening.

Quote “But the interest in Switzerland was not great … only a few thousand visitors,” said Chuck Hoey, former curator of the ITTF Museum. Due to limited visitors to the museum in Lausanne and China’s contributions to the development of table tennis, the ITTF decided in 2014 to move the museum to Shanghai, which was planning the China Table Tennis Museum around the same time.

Quote 国际乒联博物馆和中国乒乓球博物馆馆长施之皓表示……“我曾经去过洛桑的国际乒联博物馆,那里建馆十年间的参观者只有5000人次,而到了上海,可能一周不到的时间就能达到过去十年的人次。乒博馆落户上海获得国际乒联执委会的一致通过,这一决定也得到了国际乒联所有协会会员的肯定。”

("I have been to the ITTF Museum in Lausanne. Only 5000 people visited over 10 years after its establishment. But in Shanghai, it would probably reach that number in under a week. The proposal to relocate the Museum to Shanghai was unanimously passed at the AGM. This decision was supported by all member associations," said ITTF Museum and China Table Tennis Museum Curator Shi Zhihao.)

In one video, it's stated 1500 people visited on the 1st day of opening.

WARNING !!!
Clicking the Select Gallery on the bottomside will bring you to nowhere, as Mr. Adham Sharara TMS owner, he locked down all the museum's .jpg storage. Sorry.
