The Military Museum of the Chinese People"s Revolution is the first and
only comprehensive museum on China"s military history. Located at
Beijing"s Fuxing Road, the museum was completed in July 1959 and opened to
the public on August 1, 1960.
The museum has set up a display of the people"s revolutionary war,
covering 6,600 square meters, which is the only systematic record of the
Chinese Communist Party (CCP)"s 28-year-long revolutionary war for the
founding of New China. The display is divided intothree parts: the "Hall
of Land Revolutionary War", "Hall of Anti-Japanese War," and "Hall of
National Liberation War."
Since its reopening after renovation on February 18, 2004, the museum has
become a vivid classroom for the general public, including inland
tourists, students, and CCP party members, and so on.
The "Display of the People"s Revolutionary War" won the Prize of Elaborate
Works in the Sixth National Top Ten Museums (2003-2004) competition.
