China Aviation Museum Tours

The China Aviation Museum is the largest of its kind in Asia. This huge facility, located in an old air force base, is an aircraft enthusiast’s dream, but is also fascinating for anyone with an interest in engineering or the military. The museum is also family-friendly, with various attractions and games for the kids.

Located around 50 kilometers north of central Beijing, close to several sections of the Great Wall, the China Aviation Museum makes for a great day trip from the city. There are hundreds of aircrafts and missile launchers of various makes to see, including various Russian and Chinese crafts, as well as two British Spitfires and a US Starfighter.

The museum features a large U-shaped underground hangar that used to shelter old warplanes, but is now filled with rows of planes and other exhibits. It was built with huge steel doors in case of nuclear attack.

Insider’s Tip: Battery-powered vehicles are available for those less able to walk around the museum’s vast site, while everyone else should be sure to wear comfortable shoes. To really appreciate the China Aviation Museum, it’s a good idea to read up on the history of aviation in China prior to your visit.

Practical Info

The China Aviation Museum is located at the foot of Xiao Tang Hill in Changping District, around an hour’s taxi ride from central Beijing. To reach the museum by public transport, take Line 5 of the subway to Tiantongyuan Station and then change to bus number 643.
