  • As other people have written, this is located near the ring test line on the outskirts of the East suburbs hotel. I think feeling stuffed just packed vehicles in large buildings such as gymnasiums, suitable for taking pictures, mostly by a concatenation of each vehicle, but Wow is only the number of vehicles. You can spend quiet minutes Simulator, such as the Museum of railways in Japan, etc. are all not. Nearest bus stop, 403 lines Beijing railway station-sanyuanqiao station-ring railway line and get off at the Terminal, walk takes about 20 minutes from the bus stop is often written,. As the nearest bus stop, 418 lines dongzhimen bus station-South of the t-junction near South 皋 Township government off, with gold 盏 is closer. However, takes time from dongzhimen station and have to get off at the stop in the middle of the neck. It is recommended to visit the Guide, not so much, sure place well in advance. Guide represent the entrance to the premises. Entrance of the exhibition hall is located just northeast of the opposite side, building main entrance. Adult person 20 original, official car is a extra 10 Yuan.

  • 2 where is the Beijing Railway Museum, East suburbs hotel is located in Chaoyang District, morning. Other remains of old Beijing, Yang East station in front of the Gate district, has become a Museum (exhibition of real vehicles are not only the Panel). Eastern suburbs Hotel expositions SL and DL, EL, a passenger, was overwhelmed. Is the point of railway fans. Exhibition vehicle line crammed aligned side by side on a, the description is only one simple thing. Inside you can see exhibits for VIP private passenger cars (it is said that public service vehicles), is included. There is sleeping room with Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai. Outlook Express was running between Busan and Beijing before World War II, "the continent" also were on display. The pattern was used before and after the official car.

  • Not easy to get there, but worth the effort with about 40 diesel engines and the same number of steam engines in various conditions - also some goods and passenger carriages, some historical. Some descriptions in English but some faded and unreadable. 4 stars. Recommended is the visit of the other railway museum behind Tiananmen Square in town.
  • 还是不错的地方 但是觉得花钱进那个展厅有点略贵
  • 北京一百多座博物馆,很多门类,值得一看。
  • 基本都是古董机车,现代化的东西不多
  • 很值得去,不過要搭的士才到
