The shenanigans by the locals in the queue (that word (queue) doesn't seem to appear in their dictionary at ANY tourist attraction that involves it) make this tourist attraction patethic to say the least. Chinese using their children and/or elders as pawns to push their...More

Got there at 7:30 and line was short. After opening took only 20 minutes to enter. If longer wait, not sure it would have been worth the hassle for sexhibit and how quickly you are moved through

The statues outside the mausoleum could have been from the Soviet Union in their typical workers/heroes style. The mausoleum was closed so we did not see the famous queue.
