I once rated this museum as one of the finest in Asia. I visited about a year ago, and I was so impressed it took me two days to take in the splendour of the art on display. It was so alive as art should...More

The variety of art at the museum was vast, with modern paintings next to cultural paintings depicting Buddhist monks. The entrance was free which was even better, and the staff were helpful and polite. The museum has some great works of art and you can...More

The good? An easy 1/2 mile walk north of Wangfujing commercial street and it's free. Not so good: 3 floors with a hodgepodge of Revolutionary realist art, genre paintings and modern works - in each gallery! There seems to be no rhyme nor reason to...More

Nowhere has the impact of state control been as evident to me as at the art gallery. While there was an interesting exhibition of works from the Gansu Academy a group of men who produce a range of work, some impressive and some fairly amateur,...More

This is one of the best museums in Beijing. Monday closed though. This museum has extensive collections of chinese paintings and sculptures. You can easily spend 2 to 3 hours in it, from one room to another. Entrance fee is low on top of that....More

Spent about an hour at the National Art Museum. A passport is needed to gain entry, which is free of charge. On a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high), this museum ranked about 4. Thought it was arranged well, however it wasn’t very big...More

Just terrible. Showcases the worst aspects of government-funded propaganda art. Full of those paintings of a serene Chairman Mao meeting adoring, rosy-cheeked villagers or ethnic minorities, or of Chinese warships cutting through the seas. What really depressed me is that many of these are contemporary...More
