For perpetual peace to this world, this place is a must visit for everyone. Despite the on-going Youth Olympics during the time of my visit, I make sure this is the 1st place that I must pay a visit during my stay in Nanjing. Premier Abe should come here to feel for himself how his ancestors has created chaos/havoc to... More

I was impressed with this exhibition which as far as my experience of China goes, is well presented and non propagandist. The only downside was the inconsiderate and disrespectful behaviour of many of the Chinese visitors - even when signs request respect and quiet.

I had recently read a book about the Nanjing massacre, and felt I needed to visit this place as a sign of respect to the people the suffered and died in this terrible event in history.

This is not on the tourist attraction list. Our guide was a bit shocked when we requested her to sacrifice our sightseeing tour in order to visit the memorial. She accepted, reluctantly. Many of her ancestors had died in this massacre. There is a photo of a Japanese soldier beheading his victims with a Katana, in December 1937. Although he... More

First time i have visited such a place abroad (not in my country). Nice photographic material, all kinds of material (ammunition, clothes, telegraphs, postcards etc). The signs and explanations in chinese and thankfully in english. A must see place although after an hour it is tiring and maybe repetitive. At least 2 hours needed so get up early and go... More

This is a very moving memorial to the Nanjing massacre. Give yourself enough time to take in all of the experience. It is a very well done museum. It has English and Chinese for all of the exhibits.

The sites and history are amazing to learn about, but thought it was a little overdone in aspects of the ghost house music and tons of over sized pictures. Excellent English definitions everywhere. Definitely worth a visit, recommend around 2 hours, I doubt any children would enjoy it.

This memorial site is definitely worth seeing. It really makes you think about the tradegies of war. Some of the displays can be quite full on and I found this memorial really affected me more than any other memorial I had been too. Lots of people but it is China after all. The memorial does seem to drag on for... More
