The China Railway Museum is a Chinese museum preserving locomotives that have operated on the railways of the People's Republic of China. The museum offers a total exhibition space of 16500m² and 8 exhibition tracks.The museum is located in Chaoyang District of Beijing City, some 15 km northeast of downtown Beijing, inside the circular test track that is part of the China National Railway Test Centre. It also has a branch in downtown Beijing, in the former Zhengyangmen East Railway Station near Tian'anmen Square.Downtown branchIn 2008, the Beijing Railway Museum was opened in 2008 in a building to includes the clock-tower of the former Zhengyangmen East Railway Station of the Jingfeng Railway, just southeast of the Tian'anmen Square. The rest of the building is entirely new-build, dating from the 1979 construction of Beijing Subway Line 4, which required the rest of the old station to be demolished. The historic facade was then reconstructed, in mirror-image, on the opposite (right hand) side of the clock tower. In October 2010, Beijing Railway Museum was renamed to the Zhengyangmen Branch (正阳门馆) of the China Railway Museum. This part of the museum contains only one full size historic locomotive - an 0-6-0 tank engine from the 19th century. The rest of the displays comprise models, maps (some in 3D relief), photographs, documents and displays about the development of railways in China, including architectural models of six new stations on the CRH China Railway High-speed system. Also on display is a CRH3 cab simulator.

  • Highly recommend to visit for those interested in Ethnography. In this park you can see and learn about 56 officially recognized peoples of China. You need at least 4 -5 hours to get acquainted with all the buildings in the Park Museum divided into 2 large territory and see not only the interesting houses, structures, views of small Nations, but also a wonderful Museum, where for example, you can see a boat made in Tibet yak leather.
