Visited during a lower attendance week day, but there were still quite a few at the site. The displays are well done and the path you are set on tells the story well. Similar to Jewish holocaust museums that I have visited. Some of the story is skewed with the Chinese national propaganda and does not really identify that it... More

Very informative. Contains all kinds of primary sources. If you are doing a project on this, you must go take a look at it. I recommend you go with someone, in case something you see greatly upsets you. There are many sections of the museum. Many pictures and photographs as well. Its a 5 hour bus ride from Pudong, Shanghai... More

The museum looked to be a cool place to visit were it not for the fact it has been closed since 18th November. After some searching for the entrance and asking where it was, a Chinese lady approached me to say that the museum is closed until next month. I went back to a gated area and saw a solitary... More

Regardless of the duration of your trip to Nanjing, the Nanjing Massacre Memorial is a must-visit. It is very well laid out, taking you from building to building, giving great insight into the brutal history of the Nanjing Massacre. There is a lot of information to process, but the English translations here are top class. I visited during a weekend... More

This is a well designed and constructed memorial to the people of Nanjing who lost their lives in 1937. The memorial is modern and well done. There is too much information so after the first hour, one feels overwhelmed with data. This does not diminish the significance of this memorial of the history of Nanjing prior to WWII. It is...

The memorial is extremely well constructed and the buildings and land area dedicated to this unfortunate and horrific period in Nanjing's history is both appropriate and emotive. As an English-only speaker, I would have liked to see more commentary in English however, as the only non-Chinese visitor on the day of my visit, I guess they are catering for the... More

Lots of photos to see. They are placed all the way up to three, four meters where captions become too small to see. One thing struck me is that the usual noisy Chinese behave differently here. They become quiet and orderly. It helps that the museum is dimly lit in most parts, they might well be tearing going through it.... More
