We had an hour to spare before the Terracotta warriors exhibition and we couldn’t have chosen a better spot to spend it. Great art work and lots of different artists.

Full disclosure: I went in because the World Museum was closed - however, very glad I did. Lovely collection of art through the centuries, arranged by period. Beautiful collection of marble statues on ground floor too. Staff very friendly and happy to help.
