Morning Mubus Tour to the Mutianyu Great Wall

895 reviews
The Great Wall of China is an ancient fortification, more than 13,000 miles (21,000 kilometers) in length—it’s also China’s top attraction. Parts of the wall are in poor condition or else crowded with visitors. But, on this guided tour, you get to visit the quieter, under-the-radar Mutianyu section, which has also undergone a complete restoration.

I learned a lot about the contributions made by the railroads and rail equipment to the rapid growth and importance of China on the world stage. The Chinese government invested heavily in the rail system and has the World’s best high speed rail system. Much of the narrative in the museum is also presented in English. You can also experience some things first hand in the simulators.

現場充滿有歷史的火車頭及車箱. 但現場沒有空調, 夏季會較嚴熱, 也有一點化學(機油)味道. 基本上沒有交通工具, 記得安網call車軟件或預早安排回程交通 Great place, plenty of train on exhibition. No air conditioning in the hall so it can be very hot during summer. Be aware that the place have some chemical smelling. Remember to have car calling apps or pre-arrange your return trip because basically there is no public transportation back to the city.

This museum is located just north east of the fifth ring road. It takes about 45 minutes to reach from the centre of Beijing by taxi. Taxi costs just less than RMB 100. I went over the Mayday Holiday and the museum was swarming with people. Children running wild everywhere and difficult to take photos with getting people in the shots. It’s a very large museum in what I suppose must formerly have been a railway workshop or sheds. There is a ticket office halfway up the building on the left side. Admission is RMB 20. Security check before entering the building. No restrictions on photography but do remember to bring a wide angle lens if you have one. The locomotives are well packed in and photographing them can be challenging with a wide lens. A minor irritation to the photographer will be hideous yellow notices on each locomotive stating ‘no climbing’. I assumed at first instance it was obvious not to climb on the locomotives, but little did I realise it was the ambition of every Chinese teenage girl to hang from the bars of the locomotives, somewhat akin to a chimpanzee at the zoo, for the purposes of taking a selfie. Enough said - you will see what I mean. There is a vast collection of both steam and diesel locomotives. Some allow you to go to the footplate but most are observed from the well apportioned walkways between the locomotives. I was totally unaware that Chinese steam locomotives and diesels to a lesser extent were manufactured in so many different countries until China started manufacturing for themselves. Steam locomotives were manufactured in USA, England, Japan etc whilst diesels were made in Germany and Japan. There is such a diverse mix with descriptions all bilingual in Chinese and English. There are a few displays of railwayana such as uniforms, tickets etc. Decorative loco fronts are stunning both to Mao and Cho En Lai. Outside the main hall are additional locomotives and carriages. To go around and see it all will probably take you 3 to 4 hours. This really is a delightful museum with lots of interesting locomotives. No one speaks English but you can get by. Closes at 4pm and tickets sold until 3.30pm. You are not asked to leave until about 4.30pm and the outdoor locomotives are still available to explore. Toilets are behind the main building. Follow the beautiful rose beds the length of the outside of the building. Re-entry allowed to the main hall on production of your ticket. Golden rules: 1. Easier accessed by taxi because of location 2. Best to avoid holidays and weekends 3. Wide angle lens much easier for photography, tripods are also allowed. 4. Eat before you go. Nothing here for a refreshment stop.

This museum is a little hard to get. You have to walk for another 20 mins from the bus stop. However, It has the most railway collections in China. You can spend another RMB 20 to get into three carriages,including A Ten'ine2 type observation carriage, which was used on the Tairiku express train from Busan to Beijing.
