"Urban Planning Museum" Tianjin Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld

Tianjin Things to Do: 86 reviews and 232 photos

This fascinating museum is housed within the Drum Tower in the Old town. It details by photos and models the future of urban planning in the city plus shows what the different areas of the city once looked like before they were demolished to make way for new apartment blocks. What I found interesting were the photos showing people taking all their processions on the backs of trucks to their new homes and then being shown how to operate things like hot water boilers. In fact when I visited in May 2008 there was a lot of construction happening all around the Drum Tower and Old Town.

Admission: Free
