  • Fuckers wouldn't let us in at 4:04 on the last day of the Warhol exhibit so make sure to take their 4:00 final entry rule seriously.
  • Sometimes they require reservation via online to get in. Their eng web doesn't have that info.
  • Great exhibits plus options to create work yourself!
  • Nicely curated exhibitions with interactive installations
  • As PSA gaining more popularity, weekend visit could be congested around 1-4 pm (especially during Biennale exhibition where people loving taking shots). Free admission on Tuesday

  • Check the current exhibits before you go. When I went there was only a small exhibit in an otherwise giant and creepily empty space
  • The building is cool - the exhibits are a bit spotty though. Some good, some not so good.
  • Perfect contemporary art venue. Must have to all modern art lovers
  • The biggest art museum by the river - reminds of Southbank Centre. The building is left there since 2010 Shanghai Expo as City Pavillion. Cafe on top floor now.
  • Big and remind me of London a bit:)
