Qingdao Tour of  Naval Museum

    
     Qingdao Naval Museum, built in 1989, is the only military museum that features the complete development of the Chinese naval establishment. Located at No.8, Laiyang Road, the museum sits on the gorgeous seashore. It lies to the west of the famous Lu Xun Park and faces Zhan Bridge across the sea.

     The museum, with a great collection of documents, photographs and precious relics of different periods, fully narrates the history and achievements of the Chinese navy. The museum consists of several exhibition areas which reflect the glorious history of Chinese navy in all aspects since its formation.

     Navy Uniform Exhibition Hall displays the uniforms, military insignia and special duty apparel of different periods since the founding of the Chinese People's Navy in 1949. They reflect the process of modernization and normalization of the Naval Establishment. The dress uniform, office appliances and articles for daily use of Xiao Jinguang, the first commander of the navy, are also on display.

     The Exhibition Hall of Presents shows more than 300 precious gifts which are a great feast for the eyes. Donated by the armies of over 60 countries, they attest to the diplomatic achievements of the Chinese People's Navy. Many are the army emblems and naval vessel signs of foreign navies. Some of them are highly significant, such as a Russian naval officer's sword presented by the Vice Minister of Russian Defense in 1957 and a gilt sword with black scabbard given by an American admiral in 1989.

     The square of the court is the Weaponry Exhibition Area where ex-service weapons and equipment are on display. These are organized by category-naval vessel, aeroplane, guided missile, artillery, radar, underwater weapon, underwater tank and so on. Of the 150 exhibits, some are of crucial historical value since they served Chairman Mao, Premier Zhou Enlai, Xiao Jianguang and some international allies.

     The Marine Exhibition Area, covering a water area of 4 hectares (10 acres), holds a retired destroyer, frigates and conventional submarines which had made great contributions in safeguarding the country.
