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.

I really like this museum because it shows the point of view of China on the war. Sometimes it looks like they think that they were the best in the war and that they taught the other allies everything. The Japanese have done horrible things...More

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.

It's a 1.8 km walk (25 min) from exit D of the Dawayao metro station on line 14. All items are beautifully arranged, behind glass, with simple English details. The museum provides good detail in all aspects of the Chinese people’s war against Japanese aggression,...More

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

Most westerners are used to a WWII history told upon European or US perspective. But the Eastern battle field is by no means dispensable. This museum shows the lesser known side of the War, its unprecedented cruelty, hardship and sacrifice. As part of the high-profile...More
