Beijing Planning Exhibition Hall

20 E. Qianmen Ave.
Beijing , China
86 10 6702-4559

The highlight of a visit to the new Beijing Planning Exhibition Hall is the extraordinarily detailed scale model of the city that projects what China’s capital will look like in the year 2020. English-speaking guides dressed in scarlet-and-black silk tunics offer assistance to foreign visitors as pulsating lights flash over the exuberant mock skyline. The government-operated urban planning museum is housed in a four-story building the size of a major U.S. department store, and the model—a testament to the city’s current explosive growth—covers some 3,200 square feet.
