The Guangzhou Museum of Fine Arts is located east of the Zhenhai Tower in Yuexiu Hill. Its principal structure is a palace-style building in imitation of the Wenhua Hall in the Imperial Palace in Beijing, featuring grey bricks, green tiles, upturned eaves and secluded chambers.

The tower was previously occupied by the Zhongyuan Library. In February 1957, the Guangzhou Museum of Fine Arts was built and opened to the public. Currently, it has a more than 300 square meter exhibition hall and an over 100 square meter eminent artists' gallery.

Outside the exhibition hall and in front of the square stands a circular stele corridor on Wuxin Mound, which was built in 1987 and features 118 stone inscriptions by celebrated calligraphers from the Jin to Qing dynasty. In 1998, the stele corridor was extended to the eastern end of the museum compound and stone inscriptions from the Sea and Mountain Immortal Hall in the late Qing dynasty were showcased.

The museum's collection includes more than 10,000 works of fine arts, including Chinese paintings, oil paintings, prints, watercolors, gouaches, comic trips, and sculptures.
