Was with a tour group from Singapore to this museum. Was very spacious with several chambers. I am particularly impressed with the development of the space program in China, explained in detail by the museum staff. Looks much like a pseudo-NASA exhibits. There is another...More

Huge building but not much inside interesting for foreigners. It is not worth a visit. The outside of the building is interesting.

This museum has some exquisite artifacts, ranging from Neolithic stone paintings to Mongol weaponry. It is laid out in such a bad manner that you don't get a good sense of the history of the region. So much space is wasted on dioramas and so...More
