The building is so cool! And the exhibits were really interesting. I particularly liked the bit on Beijing folk customs. But they could have fit so much more in!

Comparing to other national level museums in Beijing this one is more like a city-specialized museum for Beijing. So you can see the traditional decorations/activities happened just in Beijing. Very professional guided tour offered by volunteers.
