The museum is perfect for younger students, as an introduction to geology. It is also interesting to see how many rock formations are unique to China. The technique of showing the collections needs improvement, but this is a general issue you would encounter in many museums in China. It is easily accessible by subway.

As others have said, the museum has excellent signs in English and it's very informative. It describes basic earth science / geology concepts well and goes into more specific detail about rock and mineral composition for folks more schooled on the subject. The rock and mineral collection is outstanding! The fossil hall is lacking, but I think there's also a... More

This is a nice museum if you have a special interest. We were with a geologist who wanted to see this museum so we went along. It was very informative and well laid out with good English signs. It looked like it was designed with children and school groups in mind, with lots of interactive displays. Many of the interactive... More

To be honest, this is not somewhere that is likely to make the A list, or even B list, with your average Beijing tourist but for those with either time, inclination or special interest I would highly recommend it. The museum is well laid out and informative with very good English descriptions and lots to see and learn about. I... More

This really surprised me. A perfect blend of information and specimens. Not all audio visual and not all cases with cobwebs in. Close to subway, entrance fee was 30 RMB each (adults). It is set out over three floors and has a scientifically laid out collection of minerals, rocks and fossil. There are hundreds of exhibits and the quality was... More
