I looked at the website. The English site is down. Yet Apple Maps and TripAdvisor didn’t acknowledge the day of nonoperations. Oh well. Lots of families turned away at the door by the security guard.

We stumbled upon this museum by coincidence as we were in the park on Saturday to witness the "wedding market" (very interesting). The building is quite unassuming but the interior is, although small, surprising. With a sort of "Guggenheim" slope leading to the first floor....More

We were delighted to see the Shan Shui Within exhibition in this fine space that is located in the bucolic setting of the People’s Park.
