A very modern building with a very pleasant area downstairs for sitting, getting refreshments and visiting the museum shop. Interesting section on the Hutong areas and life in them over the years. There is also a reconstruction of a traditional Beijing Opera stage with costumes on display and the scripts for some operas. The painting section was closed when I visited but there were many paintings in another section. Good 'feel' to the place, relaxing, not rushed.
