“A wonderful museum.”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

The Chinese collection was thought provoking. A very good Italian section gave an interesting contrast to the Chinese section. Very knowledgeable guides. Definitely worth a visit. Centrally situated.

“Great day”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

An exceptionally wide range of works of art exhibited in a viewer-friendly manner. The tea room and bookstore are also excellent. I would also recommend setting aside a couple hours to wander about this great museum.
