    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.

    There will be many lines, just be patient. And the "cloak room" is where you get the ticket.

    The cafe on the ground floor is very reasonable and a welcome place to stop and rest.

    Don't carry your selfie stick there. It's considered dangerous abs they make you live it in a place for 2 yuan

    Make a online reservation for easy and free entry, otherwise you have to queue outside the gate.

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

    Super crowded place. You have to wait for 30 minutes to get the tickets and another one hour to get in the show room.

    On a eu de la chance de venir en hiver, hors congés chinois, donc pas trop de monde. Ce musée est immense, prévoyez de ne pas tout voir en une journée et apportez quelque chose à grignoter.

    博物馆免费 我是去看伦勃朗的展的 这个展的费用不高 成人50学生10块 顺带看了一下其他的 都是现代作品 没什么分量 司母戊鼎和四羊方尊没来得及看 作为一个国家级博物馆 经历史验证了有份量的馆藏真的太少太少了 参观的小孩教养太差 乱跑乱叫
