So my husband and I had some time before our flight in the evening. I read about this memorial before heading here but when you arrived at the memorial it’s not just about the outdoor statues. The memorial was built around the area where the...More

It's a very big memorial but rightly so. The english translations are very good and the accounts of the events are presented in an engaging way. Definitely worth a visit, we should all learn past atrocities.

First heard of the events and people memorialised here some years ago in a UK TV documentary. You can't miss this if visiting Nanjing. A genuine meaningful experience.

I've read about the rape of Nanjing but seeing the memorial really drove the points home. I know for years that area was undeveloped because it's a well known mass grave site in Nanjing, so no one wanted to develop here which is fortunate for...More

This place is absolutely amazing. The work that went into the facilities and the scale of it all makes it well worth the trip. My only complaint was the tone of some the inscriptions. While this was undoubtedly a serious war crime, I think there...More

The memorial site is very big and you could easily spend a whole afternoon or half day there. The grounds are gorgeous and the information is very detailed. I thought it was quite aggressively translated in some sections. Very well done.

As a historian who visits China frequently, I had been wanting to visit this important museum and memorial. Allow at least two hours for a quick tour and longer if you like to read everything. Each exhibit has an excellent English translation of the Chinese...More

This is an impressive memorial to the universal inhumanity of war. The care and thought put into the layout evokes the proper horror and humility that comes from the barbarity of mankind at its worst.

The memorial is very well done, informing, and respectful. If ever in Nanjing it’s worth the time to stop by! It’s free. There are indoor and outdoor parts to walk through and very good English translations.
