Suzhou Things to Do: 201 reviews and 399 photos

Founded in 1960, Suzhou Museum has been a highly-regarded regional museum with a number of significant Chinese cultural relics. This new museum was completed in October 2006 and covers roughly 3,600 square meters including a garden. It houses 1,160 exhibits dating from the prehistoric era to the Qing dynasty. The main exhibition area contains four permanent exhibits: Lost Treasures from the Kingdom of Wu, National Treasures discovered from Ruiguang Pagoda, the Legacies from the Region of Middle Wu, and Paintings and Calligraphy from the Wu school. It's a very good museum and well worth a visit, especially when the weather isn't great.
