Suzhou Museum is a highly-regarded regional museum of ancient Chinese art, ancient Chinese paintings, calligraphies, and hand-made crafts. With a display area of 2,200 square meters, the museum houses more than 15,000 pieces in its collections, most of which are ancient paintings and calligraphy, ceramics, crafts, unearthed relics and revolution relics. In addition, it possesses more than 70,000 books and documents, and over 20,000 rubbings of stone inscriptions. Most of the calligraphy and paintings are works of masters from Song Dynasty to Ming and Qing dynasties. Signs and placards are in both English and Chinese.
A good buy here is the Museum's own DVD which documents how the building was conceived by I.M.Pei and constructed under his firm's supervision.
