As one of the best exhibition sites for modern art in the city, the museum houses a 3,000-square-meter area, including a sizable 20-meter-high transparent outdoor space to accommodate the craziest creations an artist can possibly imagine.

On the second floor, a cafe and book bar provides a relaxing atmosphere for one to spend a lazy afternoon. For kids, an art education center dedicated to nurturing young minds has regular classes and activities.

“Constantly, our museum pays attention to regional art development and cultural innovations. We promote Chinese contemporary art, and at the same time we publicize the kind of art which everyone can participate through creative and interactive art activities,” said Jia Nan, artistic vice director of the museum.

With new exhibits coming every two or three months, the museum continues to organize famed art exhibitions from China and abroad. This is a must see.
