Chinese turret ship Dingyuan (replica)

The Dingyuan was a Chinese battleship and the flagship of the Imperial Beiyang Fleet; her name was traditionally spelled Ting Yuen or Ting Yuan in older books. Her sister ship was the Zhenyuan.

To commemorate this period of history, the Weihai Port Bureau and local Weigao Group invested 50 million yuan (US$6 million) to construct a replica Dingyuan. The replica's construction began on a scale of 1:1 on December 20, 2003. The duplicate Dingyuan is now a floating museum. Inside are records of Dingyuan, the Beiyang Fleet, the First Sino-Japanese War and life-at-sea exhibits.
