As we read the reviews before our trip, it said that no cards accepted, BUT now the cards were accepted. This was a good thing because our trip was coming to an end. The atmosphere is cool, liked the paintings and all. Service was good and the most important thing of all was that the lamb chops we ate were the best ever!

We absolutely loved this fairly new museum. The breathtaking material was beautifully displayed and not overwhelming. Worth half a day to see it properly. Importantly for western tourists - excellent toilets! Highly recommended.

Also easily accessible by station Muxidi. If you have been to the national museum, some of the exhibits about the ancient China may not be the main attraction but their collection of Buddha arts and the porcelains are well worth a look. There is also a temporary exhibit on the first floor about the clothing in early china and the interior is just very pretty.

Despite being one of those modern museums where more volume is given to 'empty space' rather than exhibits we really liked this museum. Had some interesting exhibits and collections without being really stuffed to the gunnels with stuff Felt we saw better pottery and jade than we did in the State Museum. The Beijing Folk and the Beijing timeline sections were exceptional too. No floor plan as such but the map boards helped. Plenty enough English to know what was happening

The building is so cool! And the exhibits were really interesting. I particularly liked the bit on Beijing folk customs. But they could have fit so much more in!
