As I was stating near this museum I decided to visit. The museum isn't particularly large, but what they have is well displayed and has English explanations. I think it is well worth a look if you are in the Green Lake Park area.

Someone had mentioned the proximity of this museum to the park, so we decided to take a quick look, and very glad that we did. Not only is the former military academy a beautiful building but the articles on the Chinese uprising are extremely informative...More
