Beijing Planetarium Features

Beijing Ancient Observatory was first built in 1442 in the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), and was the national observatory in the Ming and Qing Dynasty. It is about 14 meters high with 8 astronomical instruments made in Qing Dynasty. It has an observation history of nearly 500 years from Ming Dynasty to 1929 AD, which was a very long time in the world. It is also famous for its intact and integrated instruments. The 8 instruments were equipped with western technology and Chinese local art design, and they can show us the exchange between the western and eastern and the magnificent western design. After 1949, Beijing Ancient Observatory became a part of Beijing Planetarium. It is the key national relic’s protection unit now.
