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.

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

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

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.
