Military Museum Beijing

Beijing's Military Museum (The Chinese Military History Museum) is presently closed for refurbishment.


Military Museum

The huge building housed Chinese Cold War-era fighter planes, tanks and surface-to-air missiles, as well as captured American tanks from the Korean conflict, U2 spy plane wreckage and historic weapons and armor.

The museum, when open, had displays detailing the Korean War, the Opium War and the Taiping and Boxer Rebellions.
The Military Museum is south of Yuyuantan Park.
