Great visit, beautiful museum
May 2021 • Family
Great museum! Recommend going in the early morning or else there are too many people. Loved how there was an outdoor section. The museum was designed by the same architect who designed the Louvre, and I thought it was great how the exhibitions were works of art, but the same could be said of the museum itself.

Good place but not my kind of thing
Dec 2020
Visiting this place after visiting the Administration Garden. It is not my kind of thing but good for my parents in law. And as for my kids, they just follow but seems not really pay interest on what in the museum

Very impressive design of building with clear routes to see the many exhibition areas. Rather busy in golden week but quite pleasant. The external area at night is quite the backdrop.

I M Pei's classic design
May 2020
I've followed many I M Pei's design from other parts of the world. However, this is probably the most classic one showcasing the tradtional Chinese symbols. Be notice that it's also popular among Chinese tourists. Better to choose a weekday to visit.

Great Architecture

The museum exhibits aren't great and the museum can get very busy on weekends. It's worth going for the building alone though, it's a very interesting design.

Marvellous Building Design and a must go place
Jan 2020
The Suzhou Museum is a blend between modern design and the past history of Suzhou. The building itself is Instagram/facebook photo worthy. The Museum is not that big but is worth your 1-2 hours.

Small, well-curated collection in a classic IM Pei building
Dec 2019
It is hard to know whether to commend more the modern building or the well-displayed collection of antiquities from the area around Suzhou. Although many visitors seem more interested in snapping phone pictures of the objects, the building is spacious enough that it's not as annoying as, say, in the National Palace Museum in Taipei. The audioguide is worth the small additional cost.

Great exhibits and presentation
Dec 2019 • Family
It is free entry but you have to register for a visiting slot online. Very troublesome if you are doing it on the spot via their WeChat QR code provided at the information center. The service staff also not very helpful unless pressed, mayhap because we are Chinese speaking visitors. We have to keep emphasizing we are overseas visitors before they click through to the foreign visitors page where we can apply for a slot without a local number.

The museum, designed by I.M. Pei, is a beautiful building, and the collection is unique and world class. Not to be missed!

Great architecture - don’t forget to view the exhibits
Dec 2019 • Family
Designed by the late internationally acclaimed architect - Mr I M Pei. I have never been to a museum where the museum actually outshines the exhibits - you actually see people taking selfies or pose for photos in nearly every corner of the building. The museum took reference from traditional Suzhou architecture and arranged them using modern sensibility, creating a fresh look. At the ‘exit’, the museum has another surprise as it discharges the visitors into a traditional building. Very well integrated.

Oops. I missed most of the exhibits.

Only drawback, hard to get a photo without someone wandering into your picture frame.
