and you need to pay to the paint you want - the problem is that students paint and they put some recommended price - but the recommended price is too high for most of the paints - you need to argue a lot in order to get better price. (By the way - beautiful pictures)

This was a wonder to see the ancient ways the art was done They uses many different sizes of brushes that produced different works of art. The calligraphy is a work of art in itself.

Personal touch in explaining the exhibits by warm and welcoming guide. This was followed by Q and A and a hands on demonstration and experience learning to draw Chinese figures in Caligraphy style. Later had the... More

We had a fascinating tour of the museum and learnt so much about Chinese art through the ages. It was great fun learning to write the alphabet Chinese characters on rice paper with a brush and ink. We felt a bit pressured to buy a painting.

This small, unpretentious art museum provides a light-hearted look at local artwork in a variety of styles, from farmer / folk art to serious provincial Chinese still-life and calligraphy. The gallery guide however, has a great sense of humour and moves the tour along at a sensible pace and with natty commentary. At the end of the tour you get... More

The guides at the museum are very knowledgable. Although small there is a good variety of artworks. The idea of giving a short calligraphy lesson to visitors at the end of the tour was a real highlight. You can also buy any of the works of arts by the students. The guide are not pushy at all. I was really... More

Decided to have a look at this museum after browsed Tripadvisor, but we have been refused to enter because we were not part of any tourist group—even we were willing to pay. It’s at middle of nowhere; it was long way to get there. This museum looked spooky as well, not our lost for not being able to visit.
