Overview

Located in the beautiful Wan Shou Temple, the Beijing Art Museum displays 50,000 pieces of Chinese paintings, seal cuttings, jade carvings, porcelain and pottery wares, handicrafts, furniture and ancient coins. The temple itself is rarely visited and acts as a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of Beijing. Built by Empress Dowager Li in 1578, it once acted as a resting place for royalty making their way from the Forbidden City to the Summer Palace. The buildings and gardens that make up the complex are worth a visit in their own right.
