If I had gone the performing artist route, this would be one of those ultimate venues to perform in. We didn’t really plan on taking a tour initially, but once I realized we could, the NPAC building seemed so massive that I just wanted to...More

We saw this lit up at night time, it was just awesome to see. Worth a visit. Lots of people are out at night just strolling around this area. Did not feel unsafe at all. The water around it just adds to it at night...More

I have not seen the inside, but from outside - it's huge (like many things in Beijing). Nicely build and modern piece of architecture.

Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to get inside the building or see any performance here. But even the outside of the building itself is incredible. The building is unique and the park around it also great.

The NCPA is a "must see" for people who interested in architecture and art. It is beautiful to see when the sun is shining, but you also have to go inside, to see the different materials they used. If you have the possibility to visit...More

A fantastic building near Tian'anmen. Take a walk around the Center and enjoy the view. Don't leave the building before visiting the exhibition, buy a ticket and return in the evening for a show. You'll never forget this experience!!
