  • An art exhibition that is far from trading in the main Street area, where there is a major exhibition and a few small exhibitions, there are various types of art exhibited on a regular basis. A street has coffee shops on both sides for rest. Victory in the geographical location, can be very convenient to reach.

  • Pretty good museum.. The best is actually outside in front of the museum. The fantastic statues.
  • Super nice, clean, and modern art museum. Has a few different exhibitions to look at, a good place to spend a few hours at.
  • It's a 1.2km (20min) from exit B2 of the Shuanjing metro station on line 10. The museum is small and can be viewed within an 1 hour. Personally, modern art doesn't resonate with me. You'll find blobs on paper, everyday gadgets encased in resin, computer graphic renderings here. There is ample space and none of the art pieces are crowded together. Access the museum at building No. 2
  • Good place
  • It's a must follow museum... many foreign Chinese artists have their exhibition there.
