Military Museum of the People's Revolution

Museum in Summer Palace & Haidian

Bristling with Cold War–era planes, guns and bombs, this cavernous museum shows China at its most hawkish. Expanded in 2018, many of the side exhibits were yet to open at time of research, but if they were anything like the former Hall of Agrarian Revolutionary War and the Hall of the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea, then they will remain a tour de force of communist spin.
