  • An amazing art museum! It's free, all you need to bring is your passport to get a ticket. They host a wide array of different exhibits, usually highlighting Chinese artists, but you can also expect to see foreign art there, too. Be sure to check the website before you go, so you can make sure they're not in the middle of changing exhibits - at that time, there won't be much to see.
  • The entrance is for free, passport is needed, but no one warned us there was a reconstruction going on and most of the floors were closed to public. In the remaining floors majority of art is Chinese calligraphy only without any English description or materials. Since we spent a lot of time getting there, it was a great disappointment and a waste of time. Definitely would not recommend to someone who has limited amount of time for Beijing, there is much more to see than this.
  • Very nice art museum!
  • Great collection.
  • Excellent pieces of art. Beautifully designed building.
