More like an art gallery, this place is still worth a stop if you are in Beijing. Entrance is free (just show passport or ID) and you will be able to enjoy different kind of arts in a cosy place.

Should you go? Yes ... But.. It's a bit of a monomer, it's not a museum, if you expect the best in Chinese art from the last thousand years you'll be disappointed. It's an exhibition space, yesterday we saw a 21st century oil painting exhibition,...More

Free of charge! Inside the art museum is nice but not various collections. However, the garden area and cafe are worth to visit. After enjoy art work, spend your afternoon by sip tea in the garden, such a pleasure.

Xu beihong dominated most of the museum when we went and then several rooms were based solely on variation on a theme. While it was decent for an art museum I do expect more from the national one.

Free entrance just show your passport. Monopads or selfie sticks were not allowed inside. The museum has 7 floors. The art works were all good. I would have appreciated it better if there were english translations beside each art work.

We travelled to the museum by subway and spent over 2 hours looking round the multi-storey Chinese collection, which was free, so a very cheap morning's sightseeing. The theme was "the silk road" so there were hundreds of different impressions from Chinese artists and those...More
