absolutely recommended but be prepared to get a deep feeling of sadness when you remember that horrible war and to get a unique perspective to continue being pacifist

The museum has several galleries showing a memorial of the victims during the invasion and the time period. The memorial was well documented and good presentation. The museum is free and can easily spend 3 hours in this place. One thing that I didn't like is that it can get very musty inside because of bad airflow and it's an... More

Well part of the reason I am here because of the Nanjing Massacre Memorial. First of all its free but its overcrowded and its huge, so brace yourself and prepare for a long walk. This is the place where we can learn about World War 2 in China.

The place can be reached by the Nanjing Metro Line and admission is free. The memorial provides very graphic pictures of the massacre if the people of Nanjing when attacked Nanjing in 1937 where about 300,000 people were killed.

Learning about the Nanjing Massacre is a devastating experience and yet this memorial is put together beautifully, honoring the victims that lost their lives. A mus-do when in Nanjing, but be prepared for crowds!

A harrowing but extremely interesting visit. The layout was excellent, it was really engaging and gave the visitors a full view of the event. It wasn't just looking at old pictures or objects; there were film projections, sound effects, reconstructions; a real opportunity to understand what it must have been like. Highly recommend as a must-see.

A very sad story,told so well in this magnificent musuem - a tribute to all those who died and suffered in this most horrible massacre. Give yourself at least 2 to 3 hours to walk around and look and read all the information about this not so well known tragic invasion prior to WW2

To see the cruelties Japanese soldiers did in WW2 to Chinese civilians is frightening. The memorial is definitely worth a visit.

I heard that August was a school holiday, but didn't expect the crowd to be so large. But it was good in a way, because busy crowd actually helped me by reducing the feeling of sadness as I observed the photo displays. The images was not pleasant, however not gruesome, and thankfully all parties related was treated with high respect.
