sparse museum; quick visit
Mar 2016 • Solo
It's a 1.2 km walk (20 min) from exit A of the National Library metro station on line 4 or 9. The museum is located inside of the Wanshou Temple (Temple of Longevity). The museum is small and can be quickly viewed in less than an hour. The permanent exhibits are organized well and display a few English signs. The collection is sparse with a few examples on enamels, jade carving, lacquer ware carving, ivory carving, and wood carving. There's is also a temporary exhibit on Liaonan shadow puppet theater with no English details.

The temporary exhibit is housed in a center building that is labeled "Beijing Art Museum Gallery". The permanent exhibits are housed along the outer buildings with no English signs to distinguish them from general rooms. Just poke your head in to find the rooms, the folks in the rooms will just shake their heads if you entered incorrectly.

Also, that bathrooms are squatters. Just yucky.

The entrance ticket includes admittance to the temple. On Wednesdays, the first 200 visitors are free. Otherwise 20 RMB for adults.

If you like art you don't have to go here

The real art lover is going to prefer the 798 art district in Beijing. There you'll find far more art then in this museum and you can meet the artist too.

Best Chineese Art
Feb 2015 • Family
Best place to enjoy the best ceramic art pieces from China. You would need at least 2 hours to cover the entire place.

Very nice setting
Jan 2015 • Family
There is not much art on exhibit, but the setting of the old temple is very tranquil, even in the dead of winter. The trees are healthy and the buildings are nicely restored. It is easily accessible by subway and bus, a nice way to experience Beijing. It is not crowded and so you can enjoy the temple grounds as they should be: peaceful.
