Basically go there and enjoy this masterpiece of architecture. The exposition is not the best one that you can find in many other museums around china, quite disappointed. The good thing is that the access it's for free, you will need to queue little bit,...More

The design of the Suzhou Museum is totally different from other ordinary museum. There are no rounded shaped design, just straight lines and hexagonal patterns. Really love the design and also the exhibition inside about Suzhou's history.

The blast of air conditioning in this small, modern museum was very welcome given the heat outside. Great gift shop. Clean restrooms. Small collection.

One of the sights it Suzhou is the Suzhou Museum. Admission is free, as I recall. One of the major attractions is the building itself. It was designed by I. M. Pei, the famous architect. It's built on several levels. There are lots of scrolls,...More

I didn't explore the galleries at all, rather I chose to explore the interior architecture and the veiws from the outside. I was rather museumed out and there wasn't enough time to do it all justice.
