Ticket book opens doors to museums in China
Sightseers in Beijing are now able to buy a book of tickets covering 113 museums in the nation’s capital.
The package, costing 120 yuan ($18), allows visitors into the listed museums for free or at a discount in 2018. It was released by the Beijing Museums Association on Thursday.
The booklet also provides a brief guide, such as contact and transportation information, for each institution.
“People will be willing to visit some of the impressive museums in Beijing more often because of the lower entry threshold,” said Cao Wei, general manager in charge of the tickets.
Each ticket can be used by two adults, which encourages family visits to museums. Children already enjoy free or discounted entry to many museums in Beijing.
The list of museums includes key historical sites around the city’s old communities, such as the Confucius Temple and Guozijian (imperial college) Museum, Beijing Stone Carving Art Museum in Wuta Temple and Deshengmen tower.
Tickets are also applicable to the country’s top-tier science museums, such as the Beijing Planetarium, National Zoological Museum and the China Aviation Museum.
