    Book your free ticket online for easy entry, otherwise prepare to stand in a long queue (1 hr plus) with local tourists.

    In Summer 2014 there's a temporary exhibition on the top floor about Chinese diplomacy. It's curated in a very partial way.

    Admission is not obvious. Non-Chinese have to turn to the right, show a passport & get a free ticket, then turn left & pass security.
