It's one of the places that you'll miss if you walk past it. Located in the basement of an apartment building it has an extensive exhibition of propaganda posters published during the cultural revolution. It's a part of Chinese history that can't be found anywhere else in China.

At the heart of People's Square, this is possibly the best museum of Chinese artifacts anywhere in the world. There's several floors consisting of rows and rows of coins, brass, ceramics and paintings: comprehensive, if a little dry. The building itself is an architectual wonder too - designed in the shape of a traditional Chinese urn with the symbolism of circle and square.
