Publications

  Since its establishment, the Military Museum has vigorously promoted the academic research and published nearly 100 works, including wall maps, history atlases, documentation, academic works and art albums. With profound influence in military history research, art creation and archaeology and museology in China, some of these publications are used as teaching materials for university students, some as important reference sources for academic research and some the guidance for collections.
