The city that got the ultimate makeover

Beijing is not the city it once was. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing depends entirely on your point of view. Well over a million people have been evicted from their homes to make way for the capital’s astonishingly rapid development, but the result is a more sophisticated, more worldly and more tolerant city. Groundbreaking architecture, plush five star hotels and Michelin-starred restaurants now rub shoulders with relics of the city’s past, be they street hawkers, traditional neighborhoods or UNESCO World Heritage sights.

Museum of the Chinese Revolution

A history of the Chinese society

Stay Editor's Note

Museum of the Chinese Revolution documents the political changes that have occurred in Chinese society. More specifically, exhibits focus on the Chinese revolution of the early 20th century and the development of the Communist party. Exhibits are arranged by the time in which they occurred.

Museum of the Chinese Revolution is located in the same building as the National Museum of Chinese History. Together, the two museums provide an excellent overview of Chinese culture and political and historical events.
