Our guide for the day stopped here and dropped us off to one of the English speaking docents here. She shared with us the history of Chinese art and gave us a lesson in Chinese calligraphy. A lot of fun for four adults and two children. It took us about an hour.

This museum will give you a brief history and show you examples of Chinese art. After your tour you will be taught how to write a couple of Chinese characters. You can then purchase original art work of students practicing their art skills.

I really enjoyed my visit to this museum! The guide spoke perfect English and was very informative about the different types of Chinese art throughout history. She pointed out some great details and clearly explained the differences between some of the art forms as well as the meanings behind some of the images/symbols in the art. The calligraphy lesson I... More

Beautiful museum and art school. Guide was fun and gave us brief overview of each style of painting. One particular painting, bamboo, an artist will study it for 3 years, and when the inspiration hits, they draw/paint no re do. Loved the writing lesson - walked out with some amazing artwork that I truly love

Went here in May, they stayed open late for our tour group, the guide spoke excellent english and spoke very well about the paintings they have on display. Was very well informed and selected some good pieces to talk about, referencing Chinese culture and history throughout. We had a great calligraphy class at the end, where our guide (sorry I... More

If you are interested in art, or interested in Chinese history, the Tang Bo Art Museum is actually a great place to visit when staying in Xi'an. The guided tour I received was very enjoyable, and although I've read a lot about Chinese history, I actually learnt a great deal. The calligraphy lesson was a real highlight of my stay... More

When our tour guide mentioned a visit to an art museum after we'd just been amazed at Terra Cotta warriors my husband and I both rolled out eyes. We were so wrong! Our museum guide Lei Lang made the art come alive. I especially liked the folk art. The calligraphy lesson was fun and funny. Our group laughed so hard... More

I decided to check this place out when i had an afternoon free. I took bus 800 from outside the south gate, followed my map to Tangbo museum. When i arrived, the museum was very quiet. I was perhaps the first visitor that day (the security guard had to flip on the lights in the galleries for me).The entry is... More

Our guide had a little extra time and stopped at TangBo where we were given a tour of the permanent small collection and then experienced a 20 minute calligraphy lesson/ explanation- followed by an low key opportunity to purchase some reasonably priced art done by advanced art students. The money going to continue art education and the museum.
