After some other very disappointing "children's" attractions in Beijing, we were very pleased with this. It is easy to get to at the Beijing Zoo stop on the subway, almost across the street from the zoo. Unlike several other places we've seen this was is very good repair and had some really great displays and creative exhibits with limited info in English. There are a couple of options for movies. We saw the 3D movie about stars. It was all in Chinese which we didn't understand, but we still enjoyed the movie - fun 3D experience. (There may have been English audio devices, but we didn't bother asking for them.)
It was a LOT more expensive than most attractions in Beijing - 120 yuan for 1 adult and 2 kids, but that is still only about $20.
Don't miss the lunar exibit! It has a moon rover simulater where up to 4 people can sit in the vehicle and "drive" all over the moon, playing a game trying to hit various targets. That was fun.
Just next door and across the street there are huge "malls" where the locals shop. GREAT prices for clothing and other items - not too much touristy stuff. You can haggle here, but not too much since prices are already so low. Little to no English is spoken so be brave. No one annoys you, though, like Yaxiao, Silk Alley, etc. It's busy, but fun.
