I went there in January (before the chinese new year holidays) so it wasn't crowded. It is just next to Yunjinlu Metro Station Exit 2. It was very depressing to see the photos of the victims. The best part is that it was very informative. All the details regarding each and every sight were written in English, Chinese and Japanese.... More

We were here by Sept 2014. This is the most famous place in Nanjing. The enter is free. The place is big and silence. It's divided into several exhibition hall. We took about 3 hours to visit all the hall. We are able to know more details about the 2nd war history.

The Memorial of the Nanjing Massacre is second in importance to the Sun Yatsen memorial when visiting Nanking. An excellent book on this subject is authored by Iris Chang, and the Memorial of the Nanjing Massacre is concerned with the 1937-1938 deaths of 300,000+ Chinese. The outdoor exhibits all vividly represent grief and indignation, life and death. Statues, group sculptures... More

Very historical, sad and quite an eye-opener about Japan during the war. Makes you appreciate the Chinese and see through their eyes.

Informative but can be quite boring if you do not like to explore the history of the incident in depth

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
