Wish this listing within TripAdvisor states that it is closed on Mondays!!! Nice surroundings within where the museum is though. I suppose I'll keep walking to the Marco Polo Bridge.

May I suggest to read the history of World War II and then visit this Museum. I could meet some of the cute kids in this museum, who acted as my guide. Do not miss to carry your passport with you while visiting this museum

Not all of the displays have English captions but overall a very informative and clear explanation of these terrible and sad times for the people of China. The staff were very friendly.

I really like this museum because it shows the point of view of China on the war. Sometimes it looks like they think that they were the best in the war and that they taught the other allies everything. The Japanese have done horrible things...More

Excellent Museum on the brutality of the Japanese Empire from the Chinese perspective. It's a bit of a trek so best to get a Taxi for the day 400 Yuan and visit a few sites.

This museum is a 'must see' for anybody who is keen to understand the tensions between China and Japan that persist to the present day. It gives a very thorough rundown of what China calls its 'People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression' from 1937-1945....More

The museum is free entry, but as a foreign visitor you usually need to show your passport to enter. No need to book in advance. It is a bit fiddly to reach the museum by public transport. If you navigate yourself to Dawayao... More
