SHANGHAI -- As the 100th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party approaches on July 1, a museum here features President Xi Jinping more prominently than any other leader save Mao Zedong, the founder of modern China.

The exhibit at the site of the party's first National Congress opened in Shanghai earlier this month. Xi, the party's current general secretary, appears in 12 photographs, including one of him giving a speech at Tiananmen Square.
