The museum is focused on oil paintings. However, almost nothing is explained in English and it is very hard to understand anything. If you have other plans, it is safe to skip.

The National Art Museum of China is much smaller than the National Museum. When I visited there was a nice variety of exhibits including one of very large modern paintings in a traditional style, and an exhibit about the early 20th century writer Lu Xun.

The building offered a lofty space and some of the pictures were interesting, though I didn't see anything particularly uplifting. I'm no art critique but I found most paintings rather dull, a sad reflection on the state of modern art perhaps. There were several painting...More
