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
