The museum has three levels and two are entirely dedicated to calligraphy, so the museum is an excellent place to visit if you’re keen on calligraphy. It houses a mixture or contemporary and modern calligraphy as well a good collection of Chinese paintings. Try to...More

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

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

Free admission with your ID card/passport. The exhibitions change regularly so check to see what interests. I loved the mix of traditional Chinese paintings and contemporary oil paintings with Chinese subjects. Was a great place to spend the afternoon away from the heat outside.

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
