This museum and its collection are a delight. First of all admission is free. The museum's collections of ancient artifacts is worthy of a trip. Lastly, the building's architecture is both spectacular and at times unsettling. Ancient artifacts are housed in the leaning columnar structure,...More

The sixth floor has some Beijing local culture displays, and the jade exhibit was good, too. The rest was just okay. Free admission with ID/passports, so can't complain.

I came here for an afternoon when the temperature was pushing 40C. Make sure you book your tickets in advance, otherwise you won't get in. The exhibits were well written and informative. I easily spent hours here.

The museum is in a spectacular space, easy to get to, and everything is well displayed. Mostly local stuff and not much that I found to be really unique. It looked to me to be a showplace set up for the Olympics.

In my opinion, the Capital Museum is the best museum in Beijing, it also certainly the most modern having been completed in time for the 2008 Olympics. The focus of this museum is largely the history and folk culture of Beijing but it also houses...More

Yes, I believe it does have storage lockers. I did not use one, but I believe I remember that some of my students used them, and I believe I saw them. The Museum web site does not seem to mention lockers, but you can check... More
