Long Museum West Bund
Long Museum West Bund is Part Two in the ambitious plan of China’s most prominent art collectors Liu Yiqia and Wang Wei. The billionaire duo fulfilled their vision of ‘one city, two museums’ when they opened the waterfront location 16 months after the first museum in Pudong this spring. Dwarfing its Pudong predecessor, this much-anticipated $43 million dollar institution has over 52,000 square feet of space to showcase their private collection of spectacular Chinese art. The higher the floor, the older the art. The first floor is dedicated to contemporary-realist paintings, the second has classics of the Cultural Revolution, while the third level is home to extremely rare, multi-million dollar antiquities.
