several ships to walk round, up and down ladders, good explanations of everything in English. We got free entry because of our age. Toilets were truly dreadful, no doors, poo everywhere, no flush. Lots of places to sit, admire the view, eat a snack

The Naval Museum is getting a massive new main building, which seems to be very nice when finished and giving the chinese marine a representative place to show their strength. Unfortunately the museum was completely closed when I tried to visit on 15th april 2018....More

Nice museum with a lot of war machines. History buffs will like seeing the old stuff. Has an admission fee, but worth it.

I really enjoyed walking around this museum and seeing the ships, hovercraft, guns, planes, mines etc. I never got to see the Nuclear Submarine as it required a guide, extra fee and time slot. I was also disappointed that the land exhibition was very crowded,...More

Being from America, it is rather rare to see some of the Soviet-era war material, espically from World War II. Highlight for me were the trio of T-34/85 tanks. You can climb on the warships, but the one closest is more interactive. Still, for 40rmb...More

If you are a military buff, then this is the place for you. For ¥30, you can look at a collection of chinese planes, tanks, missiles and other military paraphernalia strewn over the ground. The entrance is apparently temporary as there is a huge complex...More

The entry fee is cheap and honestly there is not so much to do. There are tanks to climb on and planes etc to look at. Only one ship was accessible, the others including the submarine were not accessible.

We actually not been inside. But you can see many ships from outside. There are big warships and also a submarine and a hoovercraft to see. I'm sure if you are interested in Navy stuff it is very nice there

Wow! What a shocking collection of rusted garbage! What wasn't in utter disrepair was lacquered in thick, glossy, cheap paint. White-walls are painted on tires, tires are painted black, "key exhibits" have flat tires or are decayed. For anyone fearing a Chinese military takeover of...More
