  • At the south-east corner of Tian'anmen Square, this museum details the history of China's railways. It's not the collection of locomotives - they are at the Dongjiao branch. Lots of interesting maps a...  more »
  • I was a bit disappointed by the visit to this Museum, because there is very little information translated into English. Shame as it would have been interesting even for people who don't speak Chinese. So I don't recommend it for those who don't speak Chinese.

  • It's 100m from exit B of the Qianmen metro station on line 2. Gate fee is 20 RMB. English signage is generally limited. The exhibit rooms are dimly lit in general. The museum needs a refreshed modern look. The exhibit halls are large so you need to traverse across a wide hall to view all the pieces as there's nothing that occupies the center of the room. Also, you'll not find locomotives. It's more about the development of the rail-lines than the development of the locomotive.
  • 帶孩子去的,他喜歡火車。裡面有很多火車的來歷,以及以前火車的模型及部分結構說明,一共分為四層,地下一層是火車站和青藏鐵路等沙盤展示,一層二層是火車的發展史,三次是影院等教育信息。
  • Railway Museum is situated in the Chaoyang District, suburban, this is positioned like a branch be? I think. Qianmen Station South of Tiananmen Square and train station. By utilizing the old station building intact (explained that maybe old Beijing East station) will be. It seems that Puyi was available from here. After the war, led to the commercial Museum is is now. After the Tiananmen Square?. Entrance fee was 20 RMB in 2011, but was 20 RMB 9/2016 now.
