  • 网站提前预约电子票,凭身份证刷卡进入,还可以现场预约,身份证很重要记得带; 9:30后取预约票,后面10:30人就渐渐多了,后面11:30出来会有人在门外排队等候,所以尽早不即晚,控制人流很必要,因为里面人已经很多很多了…… 场馆内展品分类多,品类繁多,太小的孩子基本看不懂,也就是恐龙园和一些标本生物可以看,建议四岁左右吧。  more »

  • Still this exhibition featuring some dinosaurs and animals look very vicious, very nice to visit, considering that you've never been to the natural history museum.

  • Worth visiting once but as others mention, needs updating.
  • While not the best example of a natural history museum in the world the the Beijing Museum of Natural History is still worth a visit if one has time. Located at 126, Tian Qiao Nan Street, in the Chongwen District of Beijing remains one of the most popular natural history museums in China. In fact tickets often have to be purchased in advance, such is its popularity. It was originally founded in 1951 as the National Central Museum of Natural History, and its name changed to the Beijing Museum of Natural History in 1962.
  • Needs updating. Save yourself the time and effort getting here.
  • 不是很大,但孩子们非常喜欢,经常有一车一车的孩子组团来参观。
  • 还可以,确实都是一些标本什么的,不过免费的时间宽裕可以来瞧瞧的
