Clearly this is one of my favourite places to be because of the beautiful exterior view of the museum!)) The columns of the museum cover nearly half of the whole square! It was very nice to see. Then inside, you can find many portraits as well as sculptures of local young artists from the art academy of Dalian! Overall, it's... More

This museum tells modern history about modern China in addition to various art exhibits. Most visitors are surprised to learn the atrocity committed by Japanese from late 19th Century to the closing of the Second World War. This museum is FREE and near the subway station. For those that plan to visit Lu Shun, please note the memorial tomb of... More

This museum has so much potential that it was disappointing to find that only one, of four, floors was open. This housed an interesting collection of photos and objects on the history of Dalian, but captions and explanations were only in Chinese. Yet I still recommend you visit this museum and combine it with a visit to Xinghai Square.

If you like museums, you'll like this one. If you speak only English, just remember to pick up a pamphlet before heading upstairs. It'll help you know what each room is about, since all the plaques are in Chinese. Nice collection on the history of Dalian from 1840-1945

I went Dalian on 18th September to visit my son who is working in this north eastern city now. this is my second time visit to Liaoning Province. The first time I went to Shengyang a few years ago. My first impression when I step out of the airport is Dalian is a clean and orderly modern city although it... More

Just off of Xinhai Square in Dalian is the Modern Museum. Expecting Modern Art, I found the museum to be anything-but when I visited. They were doing construction in several areas, so there may be other exhibition areas that were inaccessible to me, but I saw no modern art. Of course, in a land as old as China, perhaps what...
