Foreigners sign a paper at entrance with name, passport number and phone number. Admission is free. I enjoyed looking around and taking photos. Interesting to learn about Wuhan's recent history of artists gathering, interesting!

Good way to spend a few hours in the city, if you like art. There are 4 floors and each has a different theme. It's close to the Provincial Museum so you can see both at a great price, free. The art is great and they have ancient Chinese writing, which I couldn't appreciate like those that can write the language.

Not many galleries, but the exhibits are of quality. The museum’s focus is on modern Chinese art (i.e. after 1900), and offers a refreshing glimpse into trends and styles. It’s hard to generalise because the artists all have individual styles, but it is fascinating how their works are modern, yet remain clearly Chinese in sensibility. Many works have social commentary embedded in them too.

Like all art museums, the exhibits are likely to change frequently, so another day you may find very different, or even disappointing works. But that's the joy of discovery in art museums.

I spent nearly 2 hours there.

To get to the Hubei Museum of Art, take the metro line 4 (light green line) to Dongting station. Go up to street level using Exit A or B, both of which delivers you to Huangli Road. Walk southeast along Huangli Road for about 1 km, and you will come to a major expressway. The museum is on the opposite side of the expressway. To cross over, use the underground passageway that is on your left, directly facing the museum.

Entry to the museum is free. It closes at 5pm.

This museum was never even on my schedule. We stopped by there because it's next door to the Hubei Provincial Museum.

We were absoutely blown away!!!!! and never thought a place like Wuhan would have such stunning collections of art!!!!

Must go and it's free anyway.

This is a rather small museum with some paintings and other displays that took about an hour to see. Nothing stood out as a must see, but it was an enjoyable hour and the coffee shot on the lower level was quaint and provided a nice place to sit down and relax with a friend.

The museum is located next to the Wuhan Museum - so you could spend a whole rainy and/or day in museums. The exhibition is very modern and some things are really surprising/funny. I did not expect this high level and I never saw it again up to now in China. If you like modern art this is the top location in Wuhan to go.

Next door to the more disappointing Wuhan Museum, the art museum is another very large, modern building, but there is a lot more to see. Although many of the galleries were closed when I visited, there's a lot of very funky modern art and even if that's not your thing, you'll be fascinated by the eclectic collection.

Completely free to visit and thus worth seeing if you're going to East Lake park or to the Wuhan Museum, but worthy of a trip on it's own.

If you are aware of the exciting state of modern Chinese art, you would not want to miss this museum. It has an excellent permanent collection of modern sculpture, paintings and video, and also hosts special exhibits very often. It stands right next to the Hubei Provincial Museum, on the East Lake, and is served by an extensive network of public transport. Entry is free.

There is a large gallery of video art on the ground floor with very interesting entries. The remaining galleries on this floor seem to be devoted to special exhibitions. The basement and the first floor contain extremely good modern Chinese sculpture. There are paintings in the first and second floors, and also a gallery of modern laquer work. There is a cafe and a museum shop on the ground floor, and a reading room on the second floor.

The work does not have the variety that you find in the art districts of Beijing and Shanghai. However, those places also have a large amount of mediocre work. This museum, on the other hand, is well curated, and the quality of the pieces that you see is superb.

While most tourists are cramming into the Hubei Provincial Museum nearby, you can rest here and experience art, freedom of movement, and space. The art is interesting as well.
