The collection under construction

Please note: during spring 2017 the collection display will be changed. Floor by floor, the exhibition The Collection Now will make room for a new series of collection exhibitions. During the change over from one floor, the other floors will remain open to visitors; there will still be more than enough to see. Besides, more exhibitions will be on show in other parts of the museum, for example the solo exhibition by Qiu Zhijie in the old building. You can find more information here.
