Art Museums/Galleries in Beijing

Beijing is a city of art, culture and higher aesthetic understanding, at least that's the impression you'll get after touring the city's amazing selection of art galleries and museums. You'll find modern and contemporary Chinese art well represented as well as abstracts, international exhibits and rotating exhibits and even some very pointed and professional political art. Enjoy Beijing through the eyes of art and see a whole new city of wonder, color and light.

The Beijing Art Museum offers a spectrum of visual art as well as open spaces for apprecating and absorbing the pieces. For a plesant summary of Chinese classical and contemporary art as well as roving gallery shows with visiting and guest artists, this is a pleasant day experience.

Beijing World Art Museum is the perfect blend of technology and art, and precise lighting, tunnel galleries and even contemporary music contribute to making this an odd and pleasing experience.

The Design Museum boasts clean new designs from China and around the globe, including innovations that inspire new creativity and design ingenuity. In a city where the 'Egg' and the 'CCTV' tower exist, creative design is essential.

For an odd museum tour, try the Beijing Wax Museum, where real humans are stuck in every-day positions via their wax alter-egos.

The Artists Village Gallery is home to hundreds of images and pieces from artists around Beijing, making this a great place to stop to see local art on display.

As with many large cities, Beijing has a barrage of additional galleries and art museums, not the least of which are BANG, Pekin, the Central Academy, Red Gate and Courtyard galleries. These were handpicked for their unique offerings, central location and collaboaration with diverse and talented artists.
