Suzhou Museum

Map
204 Dong Bei St., Suzhou,

The I.M. Pei-designed Suzhou Museum, an angular masterpiece of skylights and white polygons, is the city's newest draw. Completed in October 2007, it houses a collection of 30,000 Chinese artifacts, including 18th-century porcelain vases, silk tapestries, and Ming dynasty landscape paintings. Take a break from art viewing in the museum's teahouse, then stroll through the garden, a contemporary take on the manicured oases for which Suzhou has long been known.
