#1 of 14 in Museums in Suzhou
Where Prince Zhong's mansion once stood, now stands Suzhou Museum, an exhibition building designed by a famous Chinese-American architect. Surrounded by exquisite courtyards, the three-story building represents a blend of modern halls and traditional gardens. You can visit three main areas of the museum--the central, western, and eastern areas. As you stroll through the museum, inspect the vast collection of Chinese national treasures ranging from handicraft works, paintings, and calligraphy, to porcelain, celadon, and silk relics. The museum also introduces its visitors to Chinese traditions, customs, festivals, belief systems, and folk activities. You can plan Suzhou trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Over the weekend morning, by the time outside has lined up a long team, about half a hour before entering the Honkan. The museum is very strict in management, not allowed to bring drinks and food, the museum whole bureau is very good, the central courtyard children are very fond of. Except for many people, the other is not wrong.

  • There are more than 15,000 items including calligraphy, paintings, porcelain, artisanal works, porcelain bowls... it does not tire to watch and you can access the Museum by a little typical Street that makes us go back in time

  • Suzhou Museum is China's famous Chinese design I.M. Ming seal pen, is worthy of all of us, the combination of modern and traditional, Qingwa Dai-WA, geometric modelling and the combination of Zen, building color More on the southern style. After all, the Suzhou Museum is the Museum of the city, and I am more interested in the architecture of PEI master than on the items on display. Transportation: Suzhou railway station rides 2 lines, 3 stops at Suzhou Museum. Our hotel has a shuttle, directly sent us to the Suzhou Museum, if the taxi is also very close to 3 kilometers away from Shan Tong Street. The museum is not very convenient to take a taxi, traffic jam is very powerful Oh! Tickets: Free. Monday closed Hall, Tuesday to Sunday 9:00-17:00 opening.

  • Very good place to visit. No need to buy a ticket, it's free, and providing electronic-guider-device in a very cheap price( Ask the front service bar in the main hall for more information).
  • The architecture is amazing, and as one would expect as it is designed by Suzhou native and the same architect of the Louvre pyramids and Bank of China building in Hong Kong. Been here twice in two years, doesn't seem like the exhibits change too much. But entrance is free (some times long lines) so 5 stars!
  • I consider Suzhou Museum one of the most beautiful museums I have seen. It is a master piece created by the master architect I.M. Pei. It is designed in total harmony with the very sensitive surroundings (UNESCO world heritage The Humble Administrator's Garden) and the old town. The museum in itself is among the best in China with beautiful artefacts and changing exhibitions from all over the world.
  • Went here many times, always building to see, but even the satffs never change
  • Best museum in Suzhou, beautiful architecture and great collection.
