My husband and I rank this as our 3rd favorite aviation museum (behind USAFr & Udvar-Hazy just in front of Duxford Imperial War Museum). worthwhile visit for any aviation fan. It is a challenge to get to, but can be done completely by public transport....More

The first thing to mention is that it is a long way out of town and I suspect public transport would be difficult. You can get a taxi there, but you will have to get your driver to wait for your return. Good luck! Another...More

It was interesting walking through what is essentially a boneyard. Maybe we were unlucky, but on day we visited all the exhibitions were closed including the Cavern. Many of the buildings had clearly been padlocked for a long time. Golf carts are a thing of...More

A must see if you're an aviation/military history fan. Situated in the north west suburbs of the city area it's difficult, though not impossible, to get with public busses. That said a private car makes it so much easier. A former Cold War era air...More

Located in Changping district in the very north of Beijing, this is NOT one of the most convenient places to be especially when you want to check out the old-fashioned planes from China. It showed the progress of how our Chinese airplane industry has transformed...More

All days, from 9:00 to 18:00 hrs, except in winters when it opens from 9:30 to 17:00 hrs. It's easy to get a cab for the return trip, since a lot of taxi drivers used to wait outside the parking station for new customers.
