Where Prince Zhong's mansion once stood, now stands Suzhou Garden Museum, an exhibition building designed by a famous Chinese-American architect. Surrounded by exquisite courtyards, the three-story building represents a blend of modern halls and traditional gardens. You can visit three main areas of the museum--the central, western, and eastern areas. As you stroll through the museum, inspect the vast collection of Chinese national treasures ranging from handicraft works, paintings, and calligraphy, to porcelain, celadon, and silk relics. The museum also introduces its visitors to Chinese traditions, customs, festivals, belief systems, and folk activities. You can plan Suzhou trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

The architecture of the museum and the garden are gorgeous, and the collections of art are beautiful and interesting, but the crowds of uncivilized chinese tourists can turn it into a negative experience. They shouldn't allowed so many people to get inside at the same time.
