This memorial site next to Yunjinlu metro on line 2 is the sort of place you should go to, over wanting to. 99% of vistors are ethnic Chinese coming from various parts of the country. What was particularly uplifting for me, inspite of all that this memorial stands for is how well it is looked after. The constant flow of... More

This memorial is well worth a visit. It is informative with good signs in English. We very much liked the fact that the memorial conveys the message that peace and reconciliation are the path to follow.

The Nanjing Massacre Memorial pays honor to the events and victims of the time without simplistic demonization of the belligerents.

The museum is incredibly informative with hundreds of exhibits. This place is not for the faint of heart and gives very detailed explanations of what happened during the Nanjing massacre. It took a few hours to observe the entire museum. The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30p.m. It is closed on Mondays. Admission is free... More

This extraordinary memorial provides a very detailed and emotional look at the massacre which occured in the 1930s. This helped shape the somewhat rocky relationship which still exists in China today. The fact is, I did not know much about the massacre before I went. So, it would help you to fully appreciate the museum if you do a quick... More

A quite extraordinary memorial and museum, architecturally stark and imposing, and a forensically detailed exposition of the shocking and barbaric massacre and rape of Chinese citizens, men,women and children alike by the Japanese invading army in December 1937. Immensely moving and yet emotionally draining. On a practical level, the museum is easy to find - 4 stops on Metro Line... More

The memorial of the Nanjing massacre is definitely something you should see while in Nanjing. The Nanjing massacre, or "Rape of Nanking", is an important part of Chinese history and has shaped Chinese-Japanese relations. I would suggest reading up on the event a bit before visiting the museum. Though the memorial is very well-done and moving, it presents a somewhat... More

I'm from Hong Kong and I've learnt about this masaccre in Chinese class a long time ago in secondary school so I couldn't remember much of it. I only vaguely remembered some cruel things that the Japanese did to the people of Nanjing. So the the exhibitions and the museum taught me a lot. The museum was very informative, with... More

So when you come to Nanjing this is a must see or you have Chinese background. Well come and you will learn something which is a good thing because we shouldn't stop learning so come and visit.
