Suzhou Museum, Suzhou Reviews

  • +IM Pei design, impressive architecture! Unique design where combine Chinese culture and modern architect. Natural lighting and comfortable design. +good quality products inside the museum +there is a coffee shop inside selling quality coffee -may not have a guide for non Chinese reader, may want to borrow a recorder for introduction -many tourists, I will suggest to go during weekday....

  • Very impressive architecture , it’s very modern and still maintains the traditional Suzhou style garden atmosphere .

  • Beautiful museum with great things to look up close.

  • Very good place to visit. No need to buy a ticket, it's free, and providing electronic-guider-device in a very cheap price( Ask the front service bar in the main hall for more information).

  • The architecture is amazing, and as one would expect as it is designed by Suzhou native and the same architect of the Louvre pyramids and Bank of China building in Hong Kong. Been here twice in two years, doesn't seem like the exhibits change too much. But entrance is free (some times long lines) so 5 stars!
