  • The military Museum is certainly nice to have seen. A truly ' Soviet building ' meant to impress with a large red star ' on top '. A pity, however, that is not the latest weaponry.

  • can also confirm that the museum is closed at the moment. to my knowledge it should reopen on august 1st.
  • It's directly accessible from exit B or A of the Military Museum metro station on line 1. Free admittance with passport. There is no upkeep of all the outside exhibits, everything is covered in dust. If you have not seen military artifacts up-close, then you can appreciate the size of the guns, canons, airplanes, and tanks. There is signage with simple English names but there's no further English text about the details. Some are positioned to far from the roped boundary to read. The main museum building is not accessible. Only the outside exhibits. It's a quick view of dusty military relics.
  • Great place to see and learn some about the military history of China. Worth the visit. Kids loved it.
  • As of 4 September 2016 museum is closed for renovations
  • Ok
