I read many comments before visiting this place. It was not what I expected. I was given the impression it was to commemorate what all happened in Nanjing (and China) in the 1930s and 1940s. But, as another just posted, it's more. It covers all...More

If you know the history of Japan and China in WW2, you need to visit this place. All too often in China things are over the top and kinda tacky, but this place has class and dignity. I was very impressed by it all. Not...More

Good to see. Lots of subjective comments in the museum but worth a visit. I discovered a part of history I knew little about.

It's not for the faint of heart. It's like visiting a concentration camp. However we all need to know the ills of our history so it's never repeated. It may affect your mood for the rest of the day though so be prepared.

This Memorial is a moving place, a reminder of man's inhumanity in times of war. Any person would be moved by the images, the excavated remains, and the inspiration of those who survived it, and the group of westerns who risked their own lived to...More

From the Nanjing south train station it was a 45 minute metro trip with one change. The site was sobering and moving. I had read The Rape of Nanking and that background helped understand all that I was seeing. The flow was well planned and...More

Memorial to highlight how bad we humans can be at times to each other....not the happiest place to enjoy a visit, but local Chinese explanation as to why they visit so much is understandable.

I visited here in March 2017. The Nanjing Massacre of 1937 was a very sad and tragic period in Chinese history. The Japanese army murdered an estimated 300,000 people. There are statues outside including a plaque which says 300,000 victims in many languages. The museum...More

Of course The Nanjing Massacre Memorial is a compulsory visit for anyone in Nanjing. The memorial is well arranged and tells the story of the massacre in depth. A sombre place as is to be expected. The additional museum about the wider fight against Japan...More

Maybe not. It is incredibly grim and focused on death. I have been to Dachau and to the Killing Fields in Cambodia. This place was worse. They make you uncomfortable, it gets under your skin.
