All people should visit this memorial, to learn of the brutality that lovers of war do to innocent people. I have been to Nazi death camps, sites of Japanese military atrocities, and massacre sites in the United States. I have a great love of history, and this piece of history should not be forgotten.

So much to see and learn from this place. You can almost feel the hard times the Chinese went through during the war times. A must visit place when in Nanjing.

This monument recalls the massacre of 300000 inhabitants of this former capital in 1937. It is most impressive by the layout of the global area around the museum itself, which addresses especially Chinese visitors. The aesthetic taste of the architecture and sculptures make it the highlight of Nan'jing.

Hard hitting, factual place of interest. This is a must place to go when in Nanjing, easy to access by subway but getting a taxi on the way out is a bit tricky.

The park surrounding the museum is very impressive and gives you a sobering feeling before entering this vast and very well done museum! It takes you through the history of the Japanese occupation of China from the start till the end and does not even leave out the part foreigners living in China played. Plan a few hours for this...

The museum provides both an emotional and historical look at a tragic historical event. Difficult to fight through the crowds at times to read all the information, but absolutely worth the visit

I went there in January (before the chinese new year holidays) so it wasn't crowded. It is just next to Yunjinlu Metro Station Exit 2. It was very depressing to see the photos of the victims. The best part is that it was very informative. All the details regarding each and every sight were written in English, Chinese and Japanese.... More

We were here by Sept 2014. This is the most famous place in Nanjing. The enter is free. The place is big and silence. It's divided into several exhibition hall. We took about 3 hours to visit all the hall. We are able to know more details about the 2nd war history.
