An exhibition on the works and life of the great German physicist Albert Einstein will run from Aug 2 to Oct 22 at the Shanghai Expo Museum.

For the first time, many original manuscripts of significant value in science history will be displayed in Chinese mainland.

The exhibition features 133 items, such as manuscripts, papers and letters, 86 of which are originals, including a two-page manuscript on general relativity.

Visitors will get to know more about the "real" Einstein as the exhibits provide clues to his education experiences, achievements, emotional life, faith and honors throughout his life.

Fang Zaiqing, a researcher at the Institute for the History of Natural Sciences, part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said the exhibition presents Einstein's ups and downs, not only his successes but also his confusion and mistakes.

Einstein's connection with China will also be seen from his correspondence with Chinese scientists and a photo from his visit to Shanghai.

This year marks the 140th anniversary of Einstein's birth. Events to commemorate his contribution to human society have been launched around the world.
