BEIJING FOR FREE
Many of Beijing’s big national museums – including the Natural History Museum, the National Museum of China, and the National Art Museum of China – offer free entry, although you may be asked to pay a small fee for an optional guide. The Capital Museum is free but requires you to make an online reservation before you visit.
