My wife and I had been to Beijing in 2005 and we did all the touristy things then, great wall etc, and 11 years later our son moved to Beijing for a year and we went for a couple of weeks to visit. Since we...More
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

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
