East of Tiananmen Square stands National Museum Of China, an inclusive institution which commemorates the nation's history and honors its culture. After years of renovation and expansion, the museum reopened in 2011 as one of world's largest modern museums. Inspect the displayed treasures exhibited in various themes such as the arts of porcelain and jade, Chinese paintings and calligraphy, dynasty furniture, and Buddhist memorabilia. The museum also houses thousands of archaeological discoveries like the 1.7 million-year-old teeth of the Yuanmou Man.

  • National Museum of China flanks the eastern side of Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China. The museum's mission is to educate about the arts and history of China. It is directed by the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China. I've been to several museums in my lifetime and I can easily say this is one of the largest museums I've ever seen. Bring your passport and go to the customer service desk. The museum offers discounts entry for international visitors.
  • Although it has variety of nice historical Chinese things, still it cannot be considered as one of the most beautiful museums around the world. Maybe we had high expectations after visiting louvre and hermitage
