We visited while the excellent Amateur Architecture exhibition was on. Beyond the temporary exhibition the building itself is worth a look. We spent a couple of hours across the three exhibition levels. Art lovers will also enjoy the bookshop at the entrance.

As many have said previously the building itself is beautiful. Also like others I was about to leave disappointed, but the visit was saved by the Amateur Architects (Wang Shu & Lu Wenyu) - their exhibition was entirely worth the entrance fee.
