This museum is a very interesting intro to the gardens. It contains many interesting pictures, wonderful artefacts, and great models detailing the gardens. It is well worth the visit and its a great intro to the wonderful gardens of Suzhou.

This museum is a East meet West kind of design. Very pleasant visit with nice picture moments in the compound and of course exhibits within the halls. There is a nice cafeteria in the museum as well.

From here you can learn about the history of Suzhou Garden, so you can the best or most special part of every garden, and if you don't know which one to visit, by visiting here, you can make your decision according to your own interest.
