I have lived in Nanjing for the past few months and definitely appreciate this place more after visiting the memorial as well as the museum.

There was none of the stereotypically abhorrent behaviour seen from any of the mostly Chinese visitors to this most solemn of museums. Expect orderly queues, hushed tones and very civil behaviour from the attendees. The site itself begins with a walk along large bronze statues...More

This is both the saddest place and yet most incredible. Words cannot express how I felt having viewed the horror and inhumanity that occurred. However numbing this was, its equal if not greater experience is the documented acts of bravery in saving lives, and the...More

Hallowed ground for Chinese people this museum is built upon the site of a mass grave from the massacre, the remains of which you can see. The small museum is informative and multilingual, so if you’re unsure of the history behind Sino-Japanese antagonism then take...More

A must-go. The experience may get to you, as it’s graphic in spots. Still, the learning of this event in history is essential. Also, go see the nearby WWII museum. It was huge and well worth the visit too.

The memorial exhibits historical records and objects, and uses architecture, sculptures and videos to illustrate what happened during the Nanjing massacre. The memorial consists of 3 major parts:...More

Yes, this museum tells history from one side, the side of the victim. Yes, it may be used for propaganda in that sense. None of that makes what happened any less true and none of that should prevent anyone from visiting this memorial. Maybe also...More

Not an amusing and entertaining tourist site, but one of the highest "must to see" in China... It gives a wide and clear (and shocking....) view about the Japanese massacre in Nanjing at the time of the 2nd. World War and a warning reminder to...More

You need more than one day to see Nanjing but you can discuss with the guide your itinerary. Ask the concierge at the hotel for recommendations. Unless the tourist guide also works with a driver or has his own car, otherwise... More
