The 1,800-square-meter exhibition hall on the 2nd floor is the most distinctive for its 8-meter height, the present highest construction standard in China.    

Learning from other museums of the same kind and integrating various design ideas, Tianjin Art Museum can hold exhibitions of different kinds and different volumes, showing strong adaptability to changes.  

Located by a lake, the museum fully reflects the feature of water loving in Tianjin culture. From the waterside terrace to the outdoor sculpture square and then to the indoor public zone on the 1st floor, the visitors can move quite fluently from the natural space to the art space. Indoor art and outdoor environment are well blended here.

Being in the leading position in China, the museum can simultaneously hold a number of large-scale exhibitions of top quality and high standard. Different kinds of art treasures, including traditional Chinese paintings, oil paintings, sculptures, woodcuts, handicrafts and so on, can be displayed at the same time.  

Besides being a platform of exhibiting art works, the museum also serves as a base of public aesthetic education. It is committed to providing cultural service for the public, opening a window for the citizens into high art and urban civilization. While ensuring regular exhibitions, some auxiliary facilities are offered to encourage the visitors’ participation into art appreciation and even art creation. There are a lecture hall, a seminar room, a library of fine arts, an art studio, a workshop for restoration and mounting of paintings and a VIP room. In addition, to satisfy visitors’ demand for diversification, the museum is equipped with a large area for commercial and leisure services. The gross area of the open zone plus the service zone amounts to 7,000 square meters, far ahead of other art museums in China.   

On the 4th floor, there is a general display hall mainly composed of closed shelves specially used for exhibiting artistic works of contemporary noted artists, domestically acclaimed Tianjin painters as well as those art works with Tianjin local characteristics.   

The exhibition hall is equipped with mobile display boards and walls which can slide freely, creating different spatial layout according to different requirements. Meanwhile, advanced facilities are outfitted as required by relevant regulations, including central air-conditioning system, constant temperature and humidity system, central monitoring system, modern lighting system, fire alarm system and round-the-clock safety alarm system. The modern reservation room is digitally managed with the world latest information technology, reaching the international standard in terms of both hardware and software outfit.   

For visitors with movement-related difficulties, special facilities are available in the museum, including obstacle-free elevators, channels, washrooms on every floor and a computer with one-touch searching software at the gate. Moreover, the art bookstore, the shop of art works, the gallery, the tea art house and the cafe jointly create a fine leisure milieu for the visitors.

The museum attaches great emphasis on its function of strengthening public cultural education and providing better cultural service to meet the cultural demand of the public. Adhering to the concept of “artistic resource sharing”, the museum tries its best to enable more people to enjoy fine art and share the best cultural achievements. We will strive to develop Tianjin Art Museum into a centre of exhibition, academic research, art education and art information, as well as a centre for collecting art works of modern and contemporary Tianjin artists.
