  • I really like this museum because it shows the point of view of China on the war. Sometimes it looks like they think that they were the best in the war and that they taught the other allies everything...  more »
  • War Memorial is located in the Marco Polo Bridge, Fengtai District, Beijing city, China. Memorial has a lot of war left during the show. There are Red Army journal. Especially suitable for students, understanding of modern history.

  • [FRENCH LOWER] ENGLISH: Don't forget to take your passport with you, as it is required to enter the museum. I really appreciated this museum, i don't understand why it's not higher on the top of Beijing attractions (at least Beijng museum). Starting with how Chinese government didn't fight the invasion to the final victory and some hope about future, it s really complete and full of explanations, everything in English (which is really!) quite rare for China. I spend a lot of time in this museum trying to read most of it and i didn't had time to finish. In Europe we tend to focus the World War II in Europe, except some important points like mountains and Peal Harbor. This museum will bring you another view of World War II (which they don't call World War II goal war against fascism). Definitely year interesting museum to bring you more knowledge about what you think you know by heart. There is a whole section about atrocities committed by japanese army, which is really interesting to understand why some chinese people still hate japanese people. It's also a great way to understand how China became communist. The way the communist party is introduced in this museum is also interesting, being seen as heroes (but History doesn't lie, they at least did a lot in this war). And it's free! It's a little far from the center though, but you can also go to the Marco Polo bridge if you still have some time (i didn't haha). French: Don't forget your Passport, it is required to enter the Museum (like the forbidden city by the way!) I really loved this Museum, I do not understand why it is ranked in the top of the attractions of Beijing (or at least that these museums). Of non-action of the Chinese Government at that time in the face of the invasion, until the final victory and hopes for the future, the Museum is filled with explanations, the Museum is really complete and filled with information, all or almost being translated into English (which is rare for China!). I spent much time in this museum trying to read as much as possible, and couldn't finish! In Europe, tends to present the second world war under its European appearance, except for a few important moments like mountains and Pearl Harbor. This museum will bring you another point of view of this so-called war world, here called 'anti-fascist war'. Definitely an interesting Museum for you provide knowledge on what you think you know by heart. There is a whole section devoted to the atrocities committed by the Japanese army, which is really interesting to understand why today, some Chinese continue to hate the Japanese people. It is also a good way to understand how China became Communist. The museum displays how the party is also very interesting, being seen as heroes (but history doesn't lie, they at least did a lot in this war). And it's free! It's a bit far from the Center, but you can also go to the Marco Polo Bridge if you have time (which I didn't, haha).

  • Learn some interesting history you know like the fact that the US had very little to do with the defeat of the Japanese... and you know even though the Chinese Communist Party with its much smaller Army than the Chinese Nationalist party was only involved in one major battle during World War II... oh I mean the war of Japanese aggression they still were the ones responsible for defeating the Japanese not the Nationalist party
  • It's a 1.8 km walk (25 min) from exit D of the Dawayao metro station on line 14. All items are beautifully arranged, behind glass, with simple English details. The museum provides good detail in all aspects of the Chinese people’s war against Japanese aggression, "Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945)". It's a worth visit to understand Chinese attitude towards Japan, towards Taiwan, towards peaceful coexistence. There's interesting bits on how the Chinese diaspora gave support back to China; how China issued visas to Jewish refugees to escape. From here you can stroll to the nearby Wanping Fortress or Marco Polo Bridge. Gate fee is free with a passport.
  • Not much visitors. Weapons a photos, model the main exhibition. Rounding out the exhibition is in the corner of Amity during the day.
