Military Museum, Beijing

Interesting
This military museum glorifies the People's Liberation Army, retracing its exploits during the Korean and Vietnam Wars. Its collections encompass a plethora of weapons, enemy war planes that have been shot down, tanks etc. Propaganda in all its splendour is the order of the day here, watched over by a monumental statue of Chairman Mao. Heading further back in time, the Long March, and then the Revolution, are also covered, illustrated by allegorical statues in the pure style of "Soviet realism". A museum for real history enthusiasts.
