The Long Museum (Chinese: 龙美术馆; literally: 'Dragon Art Museum') is a private art museum in Shanghai, China, founded by Liu Yiqian and his wife Wang Wei. The museum has two locations in Shanghai: the Long Museum Pudong and Long Museum West Bund.[1]

In 2016, a third location was opened in Chongqing and a Wuhan branch is scheduled for 2018.[2]
