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.

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.

The Art museum had many wonderful pieces. I especially like the modern art and folk art by Chinese artists. It was very interesting in that they did have many paintings depicting their communist past. In fact, considering treatment of artists in China, you wonder how...More

Only floor 5 is open. Floor 1/2/3 closed for work. So pointless making the effort to go. Woefully disappointed. Had high expectations
