Metro, line 2, to Yunjin Road. This is a Museum dedicated to the memory of the 300,000 Chinese people, many of the civilians, who died in Nanjing during the Japanese invasion in 1937/38. Much of the content is explicit and very disturbing. I would not...More

This is one of the most moving memorial I have ever visited, almost haunting and full of sadness. The narrative was perfectly laid and presented. Every words were powerful.

Beautiful memorial that tells about the horrible events that took place during “The Rape of Nanjing.” Free to go in and very close to the metro stop. Most of the signs are all translated in English so it is very easy to understand.

Due to the content and nature of the museum, this is a solemn attraction. It’s beautifully designed as well though. Lots of detail and easy to read and follow

US high school history books mention very little if anything about this tragic event in human history. Had I not inquired of my Chinese friends why China still bears hatred towards the Japanese, I never would have discovered this memorial to 300,000 men, women and...More
