Most celebrated and internationally known building of WANG Shi architect, first Chinese architect recipient of the prestigious pritzker prize, top architecture award in the world. Contextual architecture, bold firms and conceptual reuse of local traditional materials

Contents are fine but the captions are either in Chinese or poorly translated. However, the building itself is great. Interested architecture with nice views from the roof. It is adjacent to a pretty nice park. Recommended but not worth a big detour or whole day...More

The Museum building is actually the highlight of any visit here. The building has won awards, and is a true work of art - the interior and exterior spaces are both striking. The museum houses exhibits that present the history of Ningbo and some of...More

I would recommend it to visit. The building itself is very interesting. To be honest I don’t remember the exponats, but I remember the building. It is in contemporary stile and was designed by famous Chinese architect. So yes, it is worth visiting it.

Absolutely worth a journey. Stunning building, interesting historical exhibits and some stunning Tang celedon #527 bus that runs down Jiefang South Street past Drum Tower takes you to within 10 minutes' walk of the museum. About 40 minutes. 2RMB.

the Ningbo Museum is a very modern building - it won a Pritzker prize for architecture in 2012. I loved the building itself, with its fascinating angles and textures. It has an excellent shop, with interesting gift ideas. Closed on Mondays.

This is one of the must-see points in Ningbo, an otherwise not so interesting city. Wang Shu (now a professor in Hangzhou) designed this magnificent edifice using salvaged pieces of old building. It was his pronouncement that ended the Chinese CP's love affair with the...More

The museum shows the history of China from ancients days to the modern history. It also explained how important Ningbo was a seaport to the country

Probably the most noteworthy thing of this museum is the building. The façade consists of old tiles and stones from the city giving the building a very unique look. Unfortunately, there wasn’t much inside of historical significance. Exhibits included displays on Ningbo’s history and bamboo...More
