High quality exhibition in a reasonably good premise
Jul 2021
Free admission to a surprisingly spacious (for a university) exhibition hall. This museum builds its core collection on major donations from the well known local collector usually called Bei Shan Tang, and it so happened part of this collection - that on Chinese paintings, were being exhibited when we were there. High quality exhibition of over 140 paintings, though the lighting, so crucial for viewing paintings, was much better in the new wing than the old. Deserves a look to see what's on when you visit Chinese University

Pleasant art museum at CUHK
Jan 2016 • Couples
There is a pleasant four gallery art museum (free entry) on the grounds of the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) in Sha Tin that can make for a nice visit if you enjoy art and antiquity and happen to be in this area of Hong Kong.

Note: The museum opening hours are 10-5pm (M,T,W,F) and 1-5pm on Sunday and Public holidays. It is closed on Thursdays.

Presently there is a very good Selected Mughal Jades from the Palace Museum (Beijing) exhibition until 28 February 2016, featuring delicate jade pieces from the Mughal Empire.

There is also a nice collection of jade treasures from the Cissy and Robert Tang Collection on display in conjunction with the Mughal Jade exhibition, allowing visitors to see exquisite examples of Chinese made jade works, some dating back several thousands of years.

At this time, there is also a 'Bei Shan Tang Legacy:Rubbings of Stone Engraving and Model Calligraphy' that makes for another nice visit if you want to see some nice examples of calligraphy and Chinese tomb paper rubbings.

The Art Museum changes visiting exhibitions several times a year and keeps their website updated so have a look online to see what is available before making the effort to visit.

Note: The Art Museum is located just off Central Avenue, just a few minutes walk from the university library. Check maps online before trying to make your way there if unfamiliar with the campus grounds. Worse case, just ask students to point you in the right direction. English is commonly spoken at CUHK so there are no language barriers.

lovely little art museum
Dec 2014 • Family
This is a lovely little art museum on the campus of the Chinese University of HK, a little out of the way in Shatin, so it's best to get there by car.... It has a small permanent collection of paintings, jade, chinese calligraphy, ceramics etc., but what's really worth visiting are the numerous temporary exhibits, many of which are of excellent quality (e.g. the 2006 exhibit "Elegance in Relief: 19th and 20th century carved porcelain from Jingdezhen")

Review of a 12 year old girl

The museum was cool and it changes the artworks and creations regularly. I liked the fish pond outside of the museum and the statue of the man reading. Great environment!

Artwork was ok and there was a fish pond right outside the exhibition. Loved the view more than the artworks.
