In 2010, Dongping Da Ya was restored and turned into the Dongping Museum of Pawnbrokers after the renovation, being the first such museum in Guangzhou. Duringthe second half of 2018, the museum was closed for another round of restoration. On September 25th, the museum reopened to the public after this one year project. It is now operated by a social organization, the same operator behind Dongshankou’s beautiful Kui Yuan Gallery.

Now Dongping Da Ya houses not only the permanent exhibitions related to the history of pawnbroking in ancient times, but is also home to regular exhibitions of contemporary art and local culture.
