Good quality museum, not too crowded. Quite graphic in places. Allow a couple of hours. Best to visit in the morning, so you don't get too depressed over dinner.

A must-do for every visitor to Nanjing - this memorial documents the 300,000 locals who were slaughtered by the invading Japanese forces over 6 weeks in December 1937, including first-hand accounts by survivors. Free entry.

This is one of the most moving memorial I have ever visited, almost haunting and full of sadness. The narrative was perfectly laid and presented. Every words were powerful.

I have to admitted that although the place’s message is to promote peace and letting the world to learn the atrocities committed by the Japanese in China, personally I would not forget nor forgive what Japan as a nation had done. The memorial is beautifully...More

Beautiful memorial that tells about the horrible events that took place during “The Rape of Nanjing.” Free to go in and very close to the metro stop. Most of the signs are all translated in English so it is very easy to understand.
