China Art Museum set for holiday trial opening

CHINA Art Museum, which was known as China Pavilion during World Expo 2010 Shanghai, will have a trial opening from October 1 to October 8.

Visitor numbers will be limited to 10,000 a day, with 8,000 reserved for groups and 2,000 for individuals.

From 10am to 8pm from today through Friday, people can go to (only in Chinese) to reserve a free ticket by providing name, mobile phone number and ID card or passport number. If the reservation is confirmed, a code will be provided. Then visit one of the museum's 10 ticketing agencies around the city from 10am to 4pm and give the code to pick up the tickets. The ticket will have the exact date and time for the visit.

The museum can be accessed by subway at the newly opened China Art Museum Station on Line 8. There are also 27 bus routes that stop near the museum.

The China Pavilion was one of Expo 2010's top attractions, receiving nearly 17 million visitors.

The new museum has 27 halls extending about 64,000 square meters.

A similar ticketing strategy is being adopted for Power Station of Art, China's first government-supported contemporary art museum. It will also have a trial opening on October 1. The museum is in the former Urban Future Pavilion from Expo 2010.
