May I suggest to read the history of World War II and then visit this Museum. I could meet some of the cute kids in this museum, who acted as my guide. Do not miss to carry your passport with you while visiting this museum

on a practical level, a sizable museum with a lot of content requires time to walk slowly and read - not having heating messes this up. Wrap up warm if you're going in winter. Museum has been overhauled recently so modern layout (some old plastic...More

Not all of the displays have English captions but overall a very informative and clear explanation of these terrible and sad times for the people of China. The staff were very friendly.

Excellent Museum on the brutality of the Japanese Empire from the Chinese perspective. It's a bit of a trek so best to get a Taxi for the day 400 Yuan and visit a few sites.

This museum is a 'must see' for anybody who is keen to understand the tensions between China and Japan that persist to the present day. It gives a very thorough rundown of what China calls its 'People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression' from 1937-1945....More
