In my opinion it is nowhere near as good as the 5 star rating suggests. Most of the content is porcelain and earthenware, few interesting things as furniture or clothes or jewelry or weapons. The exhibitions themselves are kind of interesting but barely have a connecting theme which is trade. Some facts are repeated so if you start reading another wall of text you might get annoyed to find another three sentences that say that there was a lot of trade with China. A major annoyance is that names and descriptions of the exhibits are not placed individually in front of the exhibit but are on a separate sign (see picture). If for example you are interested in one of the twelve exhibits in a glass cube, you have to skim over all the description trying to figure out which belongs to which. This gets tiring very quickly and I didn't bother trying to understand what I was looking at after a while. The rooms themselves are nice and spacious. It's cheap so if you are close by and interested in earthenware and porcelain check it out, but I can't recommend it to anyone else.
Visit on Fridays between 7 and 9. 50% discounts from usual pricing. If you can spend couple of hours here, worth a visit. Lots of learning.
SAM is currently closed for upgrading while 8Q is closed for installation of new contempory artworks. Can the management please put up big notices to inform the foreigners and the local people when will SAM reopen? Many people are very anxious and disappointed that they can't have this answer. They think it will reopen the next day or after a few days. Many people also mistaken SAM for National Gallery or ArtScience Museum. Many can't find their way to 8Q because they think that there is only one building. Many find it very inconvenient to go 8Q from SAM. Many, especially the Japanese, South Korean, and Caucasian, are completely lost and need the Security or Cleaners to escort them to 8Q.
Good museum with a lot of artifacts. Clean and well organized. The ticket price is alright
Good collection worth it for the tang ship pottery if you like that sort of thing
