    Good place to start the tour of Tiananmen Square! We had a guide, Rico, who told us that this was the southern gate for the 3rd ring fortress around the Forbidden City. Today, you'll see hundreds of swallows around it. It's also directly opposite Chairman Mao's Mausoleum.

    Entry is 40 yuan. Great photographs and information about its role and changes over time. Plenty of info in English and a very odd stall offering video capture on a blue screen so you can appear to fly over Beijing.

    It's directly accessible from exit A of the Qianmen metro station on line 2. The museum occupies 2 floors and can be quickly view in less than an hour. There's a description of it's role and the defenses. It is one of Beijing's few preserved city gates. There are 2 more floors above the museum, but these are dedicated to crafts and vendor stalls. These floors seem out of place. For example there is a caricature artist which you would usually find at a carnival setting. Too bad not all the floors are dedicated to China's rich history. Nonetheless, of the all remaining gates, this is a grand standing gate. The best of them all. This is not to be confused with Qianmen St. Some people may be referring to the variety of shops and restaurants located along Qianmen St. This is located about 5 min south of the Qianmen gate. The entrance ticket is 20 RMB for adults.
