This is a very large open area, and holds quite a few small museums. I must say that when I visited in summer there is very little shade to be found so i found myself deciding to scurry from air-conditioned building to building. to get there take Subway Line 2 to DaminggongXi (Daming Palace West) Station and get out from...
