Recently, an online VR museum named "Chinese Memes Museum" has gone viral on social media platforms. 

It is reported that the museum was established two months ago by a host from the Chinese video-sharing platform Bilibili and his friends. It collected nearly 20 years of popular Chinese internet memes and divided them into seven pavilions along a timeline. Memes such as "I feel good," said by astronauts during the Shenzhou V spaceship launch, and "off you go," the popular memo when the aircraft carrier was launched, are on display. "I just hope that people can have fun in this museum," the founder of the museum said. 

"At the beginning, I didn't plan to make it into such a big museum. In the future developing process, I hope it will carry more meaning and functions so that people can have a different tour experience with VR, and I started to add more and more content in this museum."

So far, nearly 100,000 netizens have visited the museum. "I hope the Chinese internet memes of the past 20 years will give every visitor new perspectives in this new era," said the founder.
