It is of course a very somber site, but well worth visiting. It is easy to access, right outside the metro station. Be prepared for long lines to get in, but it moved along quickly. Free entrance. We went around lunchtime and I think that was a good choice as the line afterward was much longer (maybe try going early... More

Unforgettable. Well designed. English translation available. An important place in the history of Nanjing, China and of the Westeners who established the International Safety Zone and saved over 200,000 Chinese civilians.

It is a very emotional experience and I believe that if you go to Nanjing, you've got to visit this place. History has a lot of dark pages and this is one of them. Entrance is free and English language translation is provided everywhere

Main purpose of this trip is to come to this memorial. It was very sobering experience to witness the horror of war and what human beings can do to another. Took some time to take all in and the whole memorial was well maintained and documented. Worth a visit
