  • I advise you to visit this place before you get to the great wall of China. The Museum tells the story of the wall, its history. Extremely informative.

  • Spectacular. You can either walk up or take the tram. It depends on what you would like to do. The walk (north) on the wall and the tram end at basically the same place. At 350lbs, I made the mistake ...  more »
  • The Museum of the great wall is an excellent attraction tells the story of the construction of several Large stretches of the Walls along the dynasties. As it was built, its use for defense of the Empire, etc. Fantastic!
