Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (Maozhuxi Jiniantang), Beijing
(2.8/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Visit the final resting place of one of the 20th century's best known world leaders at Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (Maozhuxi Jiniantang), the mausoleum of Mao Zedong. Commemorating the chairman of the Central Committee of the Communist Part of China from 1945 until his death in 1976, the large, monumental hall has a scale you would expect for a memorial to such a figure, with imposing columns and little to distract the eye in the area immediately surrounding it. Head on to the main court, which has been dotted with statues with images of national pride, red flags, and inscriptions. Line up and walk past the leader's flag-draped body, and head to the onsite museums to learn about the deeds and beliefs of the leader. Take a look at our Beijing travel itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Chairman Mao Memorial Hall (Maozhuxi Jiniantang) and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Attention must get very early because after 11 no longer wait in the Sun, a camera bag or a small bag either believe me we did twice the same thing for nothing, pay attention to the application and indication of cardboard agents that you will save valuable time.

  • It is said, and the mausoleum building. Don't bother and want to visit the particular internal thinking, let alone see Mao's corpse to first appearance only views only. It is a huge building facing Tiananmen Square. Unless you see a line of visitors waiting to tend to the Chinese group tourists seen.

  • The mausoleum and Memorial are at About square. It is impossible not to see this impressive building, a monument to the era of communism. Definitely impressive, inspect at least from the outside.
