See the rich collection of aircraft and weapons at China Aviation Museum, with one section located in the caves of Datangshan Mountain, which was once used as a underground bunker system. Walk or rent an electric cart to explore the three sections. In the cavern exhibition hall, trace the development of aviation, with exhibits displaying modern high-speed and high-altitude fighter planes. Relax by the lake at the open-air exhibition area and admire the tributes to military heroes. In the integrated hall, see a range of fascinating photographs, as well as more aircrafts. Try riding a plane in the simulator and take Mao’s special plane tour at the museum, which offers information boards with brief English explanations.

  • Want to go take a look at someone, and so went out about 1 in Buri as information officer. Has come, and I can't like airplane! With subtle differences and become beautiful part and find it is fun. My favorite airplane is Russia's b-16, sharks face becomes America's p-40. And will not post the name Spitfire. Over time, thoroughly recommended tours.

  • Really interesting place! Well done Chinese, have created this wonderful Museum. Is far faster and easier to ride with a driver, and combined with visits to the other country attractions. Very informative look at airplanes in life-size! Really enjoyed

  • Please take Bus No. 912 at Andingmen station, and get off at the gate of Aviation Museum directly.
  • By organization and upkeep, it's not on par with other major established museums in the US, UK or Russia, but it does have some rare exhibits - well, where else can boast that they've a Mi-6 and a D-21 (alas as wreckage, because it was found crashed back then) all within the same compound? Especially the latter, it's the only one outside the US. By my memory, they actually have plenty more other stuff still sit in storage, and have been slowly restoring some for display. Given the size of the compound, it can accommodate more exhibits. Now, if only they can restore more of their exhibits into better condition...
  • Is an awesome place, this museum include many aircrafts, especially you can see many old fighters during СССР era. I will highly recommand this place for an aeronautical fans.
  • Its great to be able to get as close as you want to so many aircraft, bombs and missiles.
  • 這個博物館以前是機場,所以從北京市區坐車也很遠很花時間。博物館是免費進場的,裏面個別展區要買票。跟其他軍事博物館不同,這裏的飛機很多都是完好的,也有毛爺爺的座機,買票就可以登機看看。周末周日可以過來看看啊!
