Not to many words needed. This site was the main reason I visited Nanjing. It was not a pleasant visit due to the specific history detailed. Overall the exhibits are well-done. It might be worthwhile to do a little research before visiting.

We went on a Tuesday afternoon thinking there would be less of a crowd. We were wrong. Very Informative but some of the statues and quotes are over the top. I do recommend if you are at all interested in the history of Nanjing or...More
