China will have many more museums in coming years.

The State Administration of Cultural Heritage said on Tuesday that it expects one museum to be available for every 250,000 people in the country by 2020.

The plan is part of a comprehensive blueprint to nurture China's protection of cultural heritage and improve public participation in the process.

Chinese museums are also likely to see the total annual visitor number rise to 800 million from the current 700 million by that year.

The administration also said that the first national survey of movable cultural relics would be completed by 2020, and a database containing identity tags for State-owned artifacts, would be established.

According to the blueprint, cultural products worth at least 20 million yuan (.9 million) will likely be sold in the future.
