The museum provides a good background on the history and ecology of the West Lake. The exhibits are professional and I especially like the enormous three dimensional map of the lake and its surroundings that occupies much of the museum entrance. There is information in English.

West Lake Museum is located near to Liulang Wenying Park. For visitors traveling in Hangzhou, it should be a good idea to visit this museum in order to get hold of some background information in relationship to this place. Worth to have a look inside.

Prior to visiting Hefeng Street, we passed through West Lake Museum and have a quick look around. There were detailed information in relationship to Xihu and the surrounding area and worth to have a look if you have sufficient time.

West Lake is definitely a place that the city is proud of and for good reason. We had less than desirable weather so we spent time at the museum versus being out in the cold. It was so informative and in my opinion a must do in conjunction with a visit to the lake so that you understand how the lake was built.

Good place to start your holiday to get a better understanding of the lake, it's history architecturally, the great scholars and painters who lived here, the ingenious methods used to keep the lake dredged and to build bridges across it in past centuries. Explains the dynasties simply. Free to visit and very impressed

Shame it's under partial renovation some of the exhibits were closed however they do have audio guide and the important pieces of what you need to know about Westlake and the different sceneries that you might get to see during the different seasons. Some historial information about Hangzhou as a city and some introduction to the poets from Hangzhou as well.
