  • It is a museum about the Garden located far from the humble Administrator's garden. You can enter free of charge. It is characteristic in Suzhou that exists independently of the Garden Museum. Explanation of the various gardens in Suzhou.

  • 一般化的景点,真的不怎么样。去园林博物馆,还不如直接去园林,适合去的园林很多,拙政园、狮子林、沧浪亭、网师园,都是不错的地方。 
  • I got into the Museum waiting to enter the gardens. I was surprised by the incredible attention to detail in scale models of structures and pagodas. the photos tell the life of the gardens, but I didn't find very interesting, maybe because I was too focused on not getting lost in the maze of rooms and corridors. the fact that the Museum is free was the main reason I visited.
