Long Description:
With paraphernalia spanning many generations this museum of military equipment is a must for the war buff. They have on display items from the Chinese Army, Navy and Airforce. From ancient fighting swords and costumes to modern fighting equipment. Of particular interest to me was the salvaged US U2 spy plane shot down over the USSR on 1st mat 1960. How it got to be in the Chinese Military Museum I do not know.
