If you are already at T Square take the short walk over. I showed my Passport and was given free entry. The museum is interesting especially the 4th floor weapons display. Broom handle Mausers, Winchester .44 lever action, flintlocks, some interesting variants, custom pieces and...More

I thought that this police museum was more general and less fun then the Public Security museum in Shanghai. All in all, took me about ~1h40 to complete. And yes it's free if you bring your passport; at least for foreigners. For the rest, I...More

I'd seen the Police Museum in Shanghai, but that was more a history of Shanghai Police. This is more general. I believe it was free or almost free. Need an ID to enter. There were 3 or 4 floors of law enforcement paraphernalia. Most of...More

It's a 800 meter walk (15min) from exit B of the Qianmen metro station on line 2. The museum is small and can be quickly view in about hour and a half. It's organized well and with a few English signs. The 2nd floor has...More

The museum has an incredibly cheap entry fee of 5¥ and isn’t too well known so it was very quiet when we were there. It covers the formation of the police after the cultural revolution in China up until the police involvement in the Beijing...More

The museum is very close to Tienanmen Square in the area where embassies used to be. The surrounding area has nice and quiet streets and nice buildings to look at. So this could be a stop on a nice walk in that direction. The museum...More

This museum is situated just east of Tiananmen Square in the old concessions district. It's very easy to find and certainly worth the 5¥ entrance fee even for the briefest of visits. Laid out over a few floors, it's compact and not the most modern...More
