  • 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.

  • 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.
