Historical site of the Nanjing massacre during Japanes occupation is the most revered site in Nanjing. A place of respectful quiet and reflection, a must-visit site for any visit to Nanjing.

My son and I visited this museum on a day trip from Shanghai. We took the Train to Nanjing South Railway Station, then the subway to the museum. Use exit # 2 (beside a police station), and cross the road, the entrance to the museum is 2 minutes walk. Another option would be to take a metered taxi. We arrived... More

This is a very educational place to go to learn about the Sino-Japan War and the Old Nanjing life. It is definately one of the most elaborate and high quality tourist places in china that i have been to. However, note that although it is very big , a large part of the exhibit is excessive details. Even if you... More

First of all, maybe this is my own stupidity, but we entered the memorial from the back. Do not do this. This memorial was impeccably designed with very careful thought placed into how it is viewed. When you go in the back, you completely ruin this. To get the full effect of the amazing architectural and landscaping designs, make sure... More

Despite being wonderful and important, I couldn't enjoy this museum quite as much as I would have liked due to hoards of other tourists. At times I couldn't even get close to the exhibits to read the information. Despite this, I loved the museum, like going to concentration camps in Europe or The Killing Field in Phnom Phen this very... More

On the 13nth of December 1937, the city of Nanjing ( meaning, the capital of south) became a slaughter house by invading enemy army forces. Five months after initiation of invasion in China, the "enemies" attacked Nanjing that was not protected by already staggering Chinese army. Within a few days, 300.000 women, children and aged people were exterminated after a... More

The museum offers a lot of information and interesting exhibits from the Nanjing Massacre, but they only give you the Chinese point of view of the events. The place gives you a good impression of all the cruelty that was done during that time, but you simply won't get the "whole story" by visiting this place alone. Nevertheless, it's a... More
