"China Science and Technology Museum is the only comprehensive science and technology museum at the national level in China. It is a large-scale science and technology infrastructure that implements the strategy of rejuvenating the country by science and education, strengthening the country by talents and driving the development strategy by innovation, and improving the scientific quality of the whole people. The new China Science and Technology Museum is located at 5 Beichen East Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing, east of the Asian Games residential area, west of the Olympic water system, south of the Olympic stadium, north of the forest park. The new building is characteristic, the whole is a large single square, using several blocks like blocks to bite each other, so that the whole building presents a huge "Luban lock", and like a "Rubik's Cube", which contains the meaning of "unlocking" and "exploring". The new museum has five theme exhibition halls, public space exhibition area and four special effects cinemas, such as Science Park, Light of China, Exploration and Discovery, Science and Technology and Life, Challenge and Future, including ball screen cinema, giant screen cinema, dynamic cinema, and 4D cinema.

"The military museum is one of the best museums we've been to in China. If I could describe it in one word, it would be "amazing". Everything in it is really well maintained, with weapons and vehicles from throughout China's history. One word of advice though is that you need to book one day in advance before you go. It is worth it"

"April 1, 2022. The architectural style of the solemnity is very grand. After entering, the right side hall is under renovation, and the left side round hall can be visited. The spiral slope without steps is very special. There is both a national Expo, the first Expo or a very substantial exhibit. Bronze and Neolithic jade admirable for the superb skill of the ancients! The national confidence is in this piece of the thousands of generations of vessels can not speak. The first time I learned about the Nihewan ancient human beings 2 million years ago, which is earlier than the caveman, the Beijinger, the Lantian and the Yuanmou. The favorite is the "body" word in Weng Tonglu calligraphy, which shows that it is consistent with "body repair"! Must be repaired and clear, its words like a person, rigorous not indulgent, restrained not relax. Deserved to be the teachers of the two emperors! Wait for the square hall repaired, then go to visit."

"The Natural Museum is one of the most suitable museums for bends. Tickets to the Natural Museum are free. Whether adults or children need to make reservations, but it is also a super difficult to make reservations. Especially for holidays, you must make an appointment 3 days in advance and issue tickets at 11 am. The museum is closed on Monday~ The children like dinosaurs. Be sure to visit the dinosaur paradise on the negative floor and learn the secrets of prehistoric dinosaurs and the true appearance of dinosaurs. The ancient reptiles have a variety of dinosaur fossils, the hall is the longest dinosaur scorpion horsemenxilong, 26 meters long. The ancient mammal hall has many animal bones, mammoths, and many other animal bones, very shocking. There are many other different exhibition halls, the plant world, invertebrates, magical Africa, people's origins, are very worth visiting. You can also give a stamp, you can get 4 stamps on the front desk. There is no parking space at the Natural Museum, and friends who drive can park their car at the Flyover Art Center opposite. Take the subway line 8 flyover station exit C. Very convenient. The Natural Museum will also have some other exhibitions from time to time, which are great exhibitions."

"I came to the Chinese Gardens Museum to know that Beijing can be so beautiful in spring. There are several famous imitations of gardens inside. The garden behind has a water view, there are small animals such as goose, duck and fish, very lively. The flowers are beautiful, blending with the nearby beauty, and remind me of Hangzhou's Tiger Run Park. The Garden Museum is a new height in Beijing's parks, but it has not yet been the meticulous and gentle gardens of Jiangnan."

"The rain next day, it was warm and cold. ​ "Spring and autumn frozen" was the order. On February 20, 2022 ​ everyone gathered in the spring breeze to first farm. ​ Every time I saw the red wall and the green tiles and the flying tiles, my heart was quiet in an instant. It was a magical feeling. Is it just me? The Chinese civilization is ten thousand years old, we must also carefully explore!"

"Went before the Spring Festival. The location is in Dongjiaomin Lane. The free museum introduces the history of the development of the Chinese police, various types of police, police equipment, and the story of the police. Now because of the epidemic, it seems to be temporarily closed. It is usually closed on Mondays and it is not easy to park. Let's go green."

"The ancient Beijing Observatory was built in the Ming Dynasty. It has a history of more than 500 years. It is one of the earliest observatories in the world. The completeness of the instrument is also the leading in the world, and astronomical observations were made until the Republic of China. Tickets for the 20-year visit need to be purchased at the on-site ticket office. The area included a small courtyard, a garden with astronomy instruments and a viewing tower. The courtyard had three halls, showing the history of the observatory and the principles of some astronomy instruments, as well as the knowledge of the world's famous observatories and astronomers; The ancient instruments on display in the garden and the observatory towers reflect the advanced science and technology of ancient China and the wisdom of ancient people. In addition, through the exhibition, we have learned that modern China has been humiliated by imperialist bullying history, the instruments of the observatory have been taken away by the aggressors as trophies, and wandering abroad for decades, the country is really backward, otherwise there is no dignity. I have lived in Beijing for forty years, and I didn't even come to the observatory before."
