It's a free museum with beautiful architecture and many amazing exhibits. What could there be to complain about? I used to be a tour guide at the Met in NYC, so I've seen my fair share of museums. This is a great way to spend...More

Free entrance when you present a passport - so that's a plus at the start! The building is remarkable in its design - looks like a lacquered Chinese box (black and red) or something out of Minecraft! The interior is just as amazing with sections...More

You can easily spend half a day here, and there’s a nice variety of different exhibit types, including: woodworking, calligraphy, modern animation, porcelain/ceramics, archeological, Chinese history, and natural resources. There wasn’t a lot of art in terms of paintings, but some of the carvings &...More
