    Not many galleries, but the exhibits are of quality. The museum’s focus is on modern Chinese art (i.e. after 1900), and offers a refreshing glimpse into trends and styles. It’s hard to generalise because the artists all have individual styles, but it is fascinating how their works are modern, yet remain clearly Chinese in sensibility. Many works have social commentary embedded in them too.

    Like all art museums, the exhibits are likely to change frequently, so another day you may find very different, or even disappointing works. But that's the joy of discovery in art museums.

    I spent nearly 2 hours there.

    To get to the Hubei Museum of Art, take the metro line 4 (light green line) to Dongting station. Go up to street level using Exit A or B, both of which delivers you to Huangli Road. Walk southeast along Huangli Road for about 1 km, and you will come to a major expressway. The museum is on the opposite side of the expressway. To cross over, use the underground passageway that is on your left, directly facing the museum.

    Entry to the museum is free. It closes at 5pm.

    Okay, if you are a foreign visitor and you have never seen any Madame Tussaud's Museums, then it's probably a fun visit. Otherwise, you are paying a lot of money for a few wax figures. Save your money and go to Paris or London!

    With this being the 70th anniversary of the founding of present-day China, I came here for my history lesson. Nice choice...

    If you enjoy traditional Chinese watercolors, you will like the second floor galleries. The third floor had a new exhibit of traditional prints, most focusing on building, construction, cranes (one was of birds and construction cranes--interesting to say the least!). But, the highlight was a demonstration and discussion of linoleum block-making and printing in the central courtyard. Experts gave ongoing commentary as visitors could try their hand at making prints. As a foreigner, I was eagerly welcomed and enjoyed the discussion as a friend interpreted. The many Chinese photography moments followed. It was a delightful way to spend time and enjoy the atmosphere. The gift shop had gorgeous reproductions of large ancient art scrolls that made me yearn for more wall space in my home.

    This museum was really great. We had a lot of fun with my 2 friends. But unfortunately it's closed since almost 2 years.
