    It was made before the national day. Closing date for replacement of exhibits visited, could not be admitted. Could be opened from 9/24, 11 am. That was enter the organized tour trip to China began in the late 1990s, but the appreciation of the exhibits was taken to the on-site souvenir shop to remember. Wanted to see stray odd creams bought at that time has become what it is.

    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....  more »

    As a great lover of art and museums, I was disappointed. For a national museum, is quite poor... Despite a few beautiful pieces! All can be visited in an hour if we don't hang too.

    Lovely. Many interesting exhibits ex. a children's illustration floor and of course lots of fullscale paintings done in classical Chinese style. Love the museum's architecture too!

    One of the Must Visit places in Beijing. Hint: for those who looking nice chinese art supplies, visit two little shops opposite museum (best prices in Beijing).
