Built by thousands of volunteers in 1959, the building features an auditorium with 10,000 seats, a banquet hall that can entertain 7,000 guests, and reception halls for each of China's provinces. As you enter the auditorium, look up at the ceiling to spot the trademark red star surrounded with a cluster of lights.
