The 'National Art Museum of China' sounds like a place that would offer a massive and definitive collection of Chinese art. Not so. While maybe it might indeed have a huge collection of stuff in storage, it has a disappointingly small collection on public display. It is a nice building, and the work it had on display was interesting, but... More

An exhibit of the works of a number of traditional Chinese artists opened on 26 April 2012. The pieces are outstanding and well worth the time. Admission is free. Spent a few hours there today and will probably return in a few days for more. The exhibition will run through 06 May. Go and enjoy!

Has a small gift shop on 1st floor to the right as you enter. There is also a children's art facility on site, but few people... More

Dropped in this free museum for a couple of hours. You need your passport to get a free ticket. It is located at the north end of Wangfujing street, near the Prime hotel. The exhibition is over three floors. When I visited, the first floor was mostly more modern art (artists born after 1950). I found that part more interesting... More

This museum has shifting exhibitions. Remember your passport which you have to present to get a free ticket. I was so lucky to see a magnificent Chanel exhibition (yes - Chanel) - for free incl. a beautifil catalogue.

We spent a couple of hours in the museum. It had a major theme running at this time, celebrating an anniversary of the museum. There are many floors of various subjects,covering painting, calligraphy, sculpture, textiles, all Chinese, easily accessible by lifts and very spacious. As we visited in the "off season", it was not overcrowded and all exhibits were easily... More
