Pros: interesting mix of objects on display (ceramics, lacquerware, paintings etc.); free; air-conditioned; there are explanations in English. Cons: essentially no seating in the exhibition rooms; aside from the ground floor, there is poor ventilation in the various museum buildings.

A good place to enjoy local culture, especially around Zhejiang. Some exhibitions are from very old age. Cannot compare with Forbidden city & Shanghai history museum, but still worh a visit to know some knowledge of the city.

Many of the exhibits here, and there are many, have English subtitles.To understand the local context, we recommend a wander through. The museum is free.

The museum includes works in lacquer and other materials but the ceramic display is what makes this museum so memorable. The displays are of a very high standard with excellent explanatory labels in both English and Chinese.

Chinese provinces compete with each other to create the best museum experience, with Shaanxi arguably out front. Zhejiang is in there slugging, however, with its four-level facility on The West Lake Cultural Square (the original site near West Lake is CLOSED, don't be confused like...More

It's small and most impressive exhibition of its collections are lacquer wares donated by a couple. The art gallery next doors exhibites quite a few Chinese ink and brush paintings by a famous latter-day painter, Jiang Binhong.

Be sure you explore to the left building and to the right building. Althought the pottery is fascinating, the library and paintings were the real treasures there for me.
