Title:China Civil Aviation Museum?
Post 1 China Civil Aviation Museum? Sep 02,07 08:10 PM

Hi everyone,

I read that China Eastern Wuhan Branch has donated a Yun-7 plane to China Civil Aviation Museum? (Article is available at http://en.carnoc.com/list/1/1292.html)

However, does anyone know where is this museum located? Is it open to the public? Opening hours? How much is the ticket price or is it free admission? Are there any public transport option available?

I have tried a few search engines, but there doesn"t seem to be much English in锛︼集锛诧辑ation available?

Thanks in advance.

As I know the China Civil Aviation Museum is located in Chang Ping, Bijing.

I"d ever visited there nearly ten years ago, it"s very nice....

gyges, I think you got confused between China Aviation Museum (Zhongguo Hangkong Bowuguan) and China Civil Aviation Museum (Zhongguo Minhang Bowuguan).

CAM is located near Xiao Tang Shan in Beijing"s Changping. Based on some Internet webpages, this museum opens everyday between 0800 and 1700. There used to be No. 912, 845 & 945 buses to the museum, but unsure about the situation now as this info was back in 2005. Also cannot find any details regarding admission as well. This museum officially opened to the public on Nov. 11, 1989.

Meanwhile, CCAM is a newly constructed museum located not too far away from Beijing Capital International Airport. I don"t think it has officially opened to the public yet, but I can be wrong. Also tried to search more info on the net with no luck. However, the image is a computer design image on CCAM building (Source: Zeidler Partnership Architects)

As the moderator of this discussion board, I am moving this thread from Air Travel Talks to Civil Aviation Talks as it is more closely related to civil aviation in general.

hi xiayi閿�?

Maybe I made a mistake. But when I visited that museum in ChangPing years ago, I saw some air crafts used in civil aviation transportation. That"s why I think it"s the civil aviation museum.

I still think there should be only one museum, since xiao tang shan is also located in ChangPing District of Beijing.

But I am not sure really....

Thanks guys. Info on the Internet also seems conflicting and confusing. Anyway, if anyone has more details, please do share with us!

From the look of this article: http://en.carnoc.com/list/4/4529.html

China Civil Aviation Museum does indeed seem to be a brand-new museum, as the article states "... the new Civil Aviation Museum of China, which is under construction and expected to open in mid-2008, prior to the opening of the Beijing Olympics."

Nevertheless, sincere thanks for everyone"s help!

The museum is not open yet. Here are the google earth coordinates:
N 40鎺�01"01" / E116鎺�31"56". I was there about a month ago. There are 10 acft parked nearby, I assume waiting for a new home. The hotel on the other side of the planes is the China International Aviation Club. (Haven"t figured that out).
took some photos but couldn"t get to the planes. Georgelingam(11/01/08 11:45)

Hmmm, Not sure why the Chinese character jumped in there in palce of the "degree" symbol. Anyway, you dont need any of the location markings. Just enter: N40 01 01 E116 31 56. Here"s a link with a drawing. http://www.uurg.com/eng/successful02.htm

Also, If I think of it later when I am on my computer with all my photos I can put them on Picasa & pass on the link.
