    The exhibit is huge, with lots of information about the history at the time and events leading up to the Nanjing massacre. Highly recommend visiting to learn about the history of Nanjing.

    It was easy to get in - the guides were very helpful and helped us reserve a time slot etc on the Chinese app.

    Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) is regarded on both sides of the Taiwan Strait as the founder of modern China.He is usually known as "Dr Sun." He led the Hsinhai Revolution, which overthrew the rotten Ching Dynasty (1644-1911), ending 5,000 years of dynastic rule in China. Sun was Hakka by origin, he was born in Guangdong (Canton Province) and he was a qualified medical practitioner. The mausoleum is an impressive building, visitors are expected to act respectfully.

    Comparable to Xi'ian City Wall, we were amazed by the architecture and history of the place. Went for a long walk in both directions and also visited the City Wall Museum nearby. Great way to spend a morning or afternoon in Nanjing.

    The mountain is beautiful and so close to the city - it is a lovely break from city sightseeing. There is a lot to do, with the cable car, botanical gardens and much more. A lovely thing to do on a hot summers day.

    Divided into different sections, the museum shows the full history of the city of Nanjing from the days of the Dinosaurs, to ancient China, feudal China to the Republic of China a hundred years ago back when Nanjing was the capital city of China. There are large Dinosaur skeletons, large video screens showing the wars China has been involved in and even a street recreated to look like 1920s Nanjing with classic cars and old shops. When I visited there was a Chinese opera show being performed with their painted faces and fancy costumes doing their exaggerated movements. You can also buy novelty gifts from the past, back before the Chinese invented paper, they wrote on sticks of bamboo tied together by rope as well as other relics of China's past. Surprisingly you'll also see statues of people from other nation's history like the ancient Greek philosopher Plato doing his famous pose from the iconic painting the School of Athens. At the end of the museum you can find a place to grab some food but don't rush through because you might miss something, take your time.
