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.

There isn't anything I didn't like about this museum. Few tourists drop by but the curator does a great job of covering folk art in Shaanxi province. Shadow puppetry, painting, paper cutting, and mask making were just a few crafts the curator discussed.

The museum is small, but the visit with the guide (free, available both in English and Chinese) is quite good and fun! It's free if you're a student, otherwise it would cost you 30 yuan.

This museum is not on the regular tourist route in Xi'an but well worth considering. Good for adults and young people. The primary focus is folk art, but visitors can also learn about China's outstanding tradition of painting, even though the examples of famous paintings are reproductions. The English speaking guide we had (Lei Li, I believe her name was)... More

Our tour group had a stop planned here in the afternoon. Wasn't sure what to expect from a museum but this place was very fun and interesting! A caveat: I'm not sure if everyone gets this experience when they just walk in the door, or if you have to set this up with a group. We got a short tour... More
