Changshu Museum covers an area of over 6,000 square meters, and has a total construction area of 9,100 square meters.

It now has seven exhibition halls for jade, ceramics, calligraphy and other treasures.

In the porcelain exhibition hall, a naked eye three-dimensional imaging system has been added so that the audience can see the porcelain products at close range from multiple angles.

The museum houses over 16,000 pieces (sets) of cultural relics ranging from the Songze and Liangzhu Culture some 5,000 years ago to the New Democratic Revolution period (1919-49); among them are 21 national first-class cultural relics and 261 second-level cultural relics.
