If you're even moderately interested in this sort of thing, it's worth a trip. The giant model/map of Beijing is astounding, but other exhibits should not be overlooked - it is fascinating to see how the city has grown and changed, especially in the last...More

This exhibition featured a whole floor dedicated to a city model of Beijing. It has to be seen to be believed. The whole exhibition gave you an insight into Chinese city planning, conservation of heritage, and modern building techniques. This is just not for architects...More

Very few people, let alone few Westerners visit. Enormous map of Beijing is the highlight, but the exhibits on the building industry are very informative. Museum is free.

We decided to go here because even though very few people have reviewed on the Trip Adviser site, everyone who went seemed to think it was fantastic so that convinced us to go. It is on the south east corner of Tian'anmen Square so if...More

Interesting displays and movies although you have to time it to see the main 3D movie as it isn't shown between 11:30 and 2:30. The scale model is really neat- we could see where our accommodation is in relation to all the key sights. Costs...More

I am an urban planner so when a guide book briefly mentioned this attraction, I felt compelled to seek it out. It was a quiet place with amazing models of Beijing. Best of all no lines and great air conditioning. It does a great job...More

I'm surprised at some of the bad reviews. This is about city planning so don't expect school type exhibits. See this before you go to anything else in Beijing. There is a great bronze half globe in the entrance showing Beijing city, the 6 ring...More

It's 150 m walk from exit B of the Qianmen metro station on line 2. Gate fee is 30 RMB. The museum spans 4 floors. English is sparse. The exhibits did not provide good outline of Beijing city planning. Most exhibits stood alone without any...More

There was less than 10 people when I visited. The building is a white elephant, the exhibits were mostly poorly maintained or not operating. There is an impressive model on the 2nd level but that's about it. Nothing to buy here either as they were...More
