Museum has a new Look

Passed by the Beijing Art Museum yesterday and first encountered the line to get in over two blocks away.

The entire facade of the building has been redone as a part of its latest exhibit “Dunhuang Lights”, to look like the cliff scarp at Mogao Cu.

A bit surreal, but an extremely popular exhibit, daily admissions are capped at 7,000 people a day.

I particularly like the fact that they reproduced the free standing gate that is at the entrance of the caves. I am getting a visit of the museum Monday.
