Excellent Stop to experience historical and local art work. Our museum guide was peppy and attentive to my students (23 high schoolers from Brooklyn). The hands on calligraphy was great and most of us bought artwork created by local artists who were either students or farmers.

Formerly known as the TangBo (Tang Dynasty) Art Museum, this little jewel is a "must see" for the discriminating traveler. While it is not vast, like the Terracotta Warriors or the Guangzhong Folk Art Museum, it contains one of the most complete and interesting collections of Chinese painting and derivatives, such as ceramic masks and "paper cuts". The tours are fascinating, and provide an "in context" historical development. The museum itself is "intimate", allowing up-close viewing of these "art gems". You can compare styles and ponder method, study brushstrokes and appreciate content. I could have easily spent days, rather than hours, here.

But there is an added bonus, unexpected and a joy to the heart. One way to reach a deep appreciation of calligraphy and traditional Chinese painting is to experience it. There is an active calligraphy and painting room, where you can receive instruction and participate in a calligraphy lesson. Within the room are works of both student and senior artists which can be viewed, and some can be purchased. I cannot begin to describe the happiness I felt here.

Remembering all the many cultural and historic places we visited in China, the Hongdao Art Museum remains one of my fondest.

If you are interested in calligraphy, folk arts and an exhibition of Chinese painting history, a visit to the Hongdao Art Museum is definitely worthwhile.

This museum consists of three sections: Chinese folk arts containing farmer paintings, paper cuttings and facial masks; an exhibition on Chinese painting history; a cultural exchange hall where local artists exhibit and sell their work. Our museum guide had a twinkle in her eye and clearly enjoyed presenting information about the art. My eyes feasted on the vibrant colors and each artist’s interpretation of scenes and people in the folk art section. The detail of the paper cutting illustrated superb skill. I could not believe that I was looking at a rice paper brush painting that was 2200 years old. This was all great, but there is even more. In the cultural exchange hall, our guide gave us a calligraphy lesson. What fun!

The Hongdao Art Museum does not have a website but if you Google the museum's name you will find additional information. You can read more about our experience and see photos here:
