Unforgettable. Well designed. English translation available. An important place in the history of Nanjing, China and of the Westeners who established the International Safety Zone and saved over 200,000 Chinese civilians.

It is a very emotional experience and I believe that if you go to Nanjing, you've got to visit this place. History has a lot of dark pages and this is one of them. Entrance is free and English language translation is provided everywhere

The massacre that happened in Nanjing is no doubt terrible, but the way that the government aims to deal with it through the use of this museum is also terrible. The museum is a big propaganda machine for the government. While in China, you will...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.
