The Poly Art Museum (Bǎolì yìshù bówùguǎn) Review
This very impressive museum, located in a gleaming new glass office tower called New Poly Plaza, was established in 1998 to promote traditional art and to protect Chinese art from being lost to foreign countries. The museum has focused on the overseas acquisition of ancient bronzes, sculpture, and painting. The museum is divided into two galleries, one for the display of early Chinese bronzes, and the other for Buddhist scriptures carved in stone. Also on display here are four bronze animal heads that were once located in the Old Summer Palace.
