Views from Travelers:
This is a good place. It is the old building in Dongjiao Minxiang. There are lots to see in the museum. You can also see the development of the whole era from the end of Qing dynasty to modern society. You can also see the importance of law and order.
Each time I passed the museum, I was attracted by the big clock. In fact it is the old site of Unite States Citibank Beijing Branch. The building itself has values of appreciation.
I was surprised that there is such kind of museum! I was really curious about it. I like the environment around the museum.
