The national art museum is split into 3 buildings around the city. Modern, Contemporary and Sculpture. We went to all 3 and they were excellent. They all had very good information by each item as well as a lot of technology providing further information. None of them were overcrowded with artefacts which was good so you could concentrate on a smaller number of items. The contemporry and modern have good cafes. The sculpture has free tea and coffee. We spent 1 - 2 hours in each one so did this over 2 days. They are split up quite far apart over the city.

This gallery features contemporary art. It is located in the old warehouse building near the Old Harbour . The building itelf is gorgeous with amazing space with multiple rooms and exhibition spaces .Beautiful building, but the art inside... not all on a level of national gallery. But, maybe I'm not that into modern art. The size of the gallery compared to the size of the building seems much smaller. There’s also a well positioned cafe offering tremendous views across the Old Harbour and a nice shop . The staff are nice and helpful. So, if you enjoy contemporary art, go , but If you tend to not care for it, maybe skip it .

On the second floors is complimentary coffee , gift shop had some fun things . Lady at the front register was nice.

Expecting to see some art work/project, some selection of displays or anything, all I encountered was vast emptiness and empty walls; this was one of the very rare disappointments I have encountered in this gorgeous country.

This museum will challenge you in different ways. There are things here you wonder who would call this art? Other things are quite remarkable in the ways they make you think about your way of life or character. You won't leave this museum being bored, that's for sure. The large exhibit on Chairman Mao and the PRC is very provocative and challenging. Yoko Ono's exhibit makes you make or run away from commitment to imagine peace. There are some exhibits that may make you feel mad. But art is supposed to make you feel something, sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not so good. Be challenged at this Art Museum
