The current show on 3rd to 5th centuries in China is excellent. The subject matter is very well selected and the coloration of the display is spectacular. Plus CI is in a brand new facility.

This museum has a vast source of inspiration and only two rooms to display what it finds -- but it does so in a wonderfully informative way. I came across an unusual aspect of Chinese culture -- an exhibit I really enjoyed on how Mao inspired workers by awarding them Golden Mangoes -- see my pictures attached. The current exhibit...

There are only two rooms in this museum but it is always worth checking from time to time to see what is on offer.

Very small exhibition, but super stunning. Worth a visit, though just 2 rooms. Fee is $7 per person with discounts for memberships in other museums and for seniors.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
