A full guide to this station is being built. The following is a brief summary. We apologise if you cannot locate what you are looking for within this summary.

Military Museum (Junshi Bowuguan) Subway Station (地铁军事博物馆) is on Beijing Subway Line 1 and Line 9. It is situated by just between the Chinese People’s Revolutionary Military Museum and the China Millennium Monument.

Arriving by Subway

Doors will open on the left. This station uses split or enclosed concourses, so choose your exit before departing via the exit gates.

Escalators leading to ground level are generally available at exits.


The closest entrance to the Military Museum is Exit B. This station was one of the first in the Beijing network to have escalators, apparently to impress visitors in the 1960s and 1970s.

Exit C1 is close to China Railway Corporation (Chinese national railways). It’s wiser, though, to get your train tickets at a real railway station!

Exit E (split into Exits E1 and E2; some of these are one-way only!) are closest to the China Millennium Monument and the TV Centre of Chinese Central Television.
