  • 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.

  • If treated seriously, really, before exploring the gardens you can visit the Museum to begin, where to tell the story of art in China, there is an exposition of bonsai (and Gallery of portraits of famous gardeners). But by and large, even if you don't know the theory, gardens still look interesting, and if time is not enough, then you can skip the Museum.

  • To the left of the Garden Museum official garden of Suzhou, which recommend a cursory inspection and let the front of the Park. Exposure is small, but there are interesting exhibits and simulate gardens, explaining that where and how it should be. Chinese plates are duplicated in English.
