Worth the visit, eventhough it can get crowded. The way history is presented from Chinese perspective is often questionable, but not in this case. Takes maybe 1.5-2 hours from metro station, museum tour and back to metro station.

Incredible memorial that describes the Nánjīng Massacre in vivid detail. Details everything that happened leading up to, during, and after the event. Not to be missed.

You need to visit this place to understand very difficult and complex China-Japan relationship. Take your time , relax and reflect.
