The museum is well-maintained and there is a good variety of materials i.e. artifacts, photos, videos which will keep you engaged and well-informed about the history. However, the label showing the writeup describing the artifacts can be improved as the fonts are rather small and...More

An impressive and comprehensive museum documenting the events leading up to the Nanjing massacre with impressive architectural monuments and a somber exposed mass grave site. Would've been better if there weren't that many people there

Cons: Poorly curated (for the average visitor, it would feel like somebody took a year's syllabus worth of study materials and just...More

Revisited this museum after 7 years, it is still very well maintained and it is still very emotional experience. While the crowds are noticeably increased, it will remain as my favorite museum in Nanjing.

You need more than one day to see Nanjing but you can discuss with the guide your itinerary. Ask the concierge at the hotel for recommendations. Unless the tourist guide also works with a driver or has his own car, otherwise... More
