Huge improvement to the museum that it was two years ago. Now there are more detailed information of the founding of the party. I was positively surprised that all the information ( who joined, who left, what happened) played in the museum openly. As mentioned...More

Very nice building and well-organized. Relatively easy to get in (no need for passport - they only scan your finger print) and a lot to see

If you have a chance visit nearby do drop by this free admission museum and really learn how the most important part of China formed. There is x ray screen at entrance and would not get queue up too long.

The place is worth of a visit. It gives a good account of this historical moment, and can be easily combined with visits around. Not to be missed!

If you can get past the unsubtle state propaganda (as Comrade Xi Jinping said...) it's a pretty interesting insight into the history of modern Chinese history (or at least how the current regimes wants to present it!). Best of all.. it's free!! Try not to...More
