Though some would say 798 Art District has become too commercial, art lovers shouldn't miss this complex of former munitions factories that was converted into an expansive gallery and exhibition space in the mid- to late-1990s, when artists in search of cheap studio space started trickling into the area. Today, 798 is a full-blown tourist attraction with trendy cafés, restaurants, and shop, yet serious galleries and art centers like UCCA, 798 Space, Galleria Continua, Beijing Commune, and Pace Beijing continue to hold thought-provoking exhibitions and public workshops there.
