This cubist/geometric IM Pei–designed triumph takes a modern interpretation of a Sūzhōu garden, with its confluence of water, bamboo and straight lines, and mixes it with a fascinating array of jade, ceramics, wooden carvings, textiles and other displays, all labelled with good and informative English captions. Look out for the boxwood statue of Avalokiteshvara (Guanyin), dating from the republican period. No flip-flops.
