  • 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.

  • 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!
  • Excellent pieces of art. Beautifully designed building.
  • Good somewhat off the beaten path museum. Good installations
  • 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).
  • A great place to get acquainted with the Chinese art .
