"9.18"Historical Museum offers an unflinching look at the atrocities that took place over the 14 years of Japanese occupation in North East China. Part memorial, part informative museum, the site's goal is "to educate the people in patriotism and national defense," and it achieves this by portraying the treatment of the Chinese at the hands of their aggressors. Over 32,000 sq m (344,445 sq ft) and across eight exhibition halls, you'll witness recreated scenes of torture and photographic displays showing the horrors that took place. Though the museum offers limited information in English, you can get a guidebook from the gift shop.

    South Manchuria railway bombings of the Kwantung Army of Japan, (9/18 = liutiao Lake incident) History Museum named in the title. Near the blast site. Invasion of Japan from the Chinese side and the anti-day front display photos and documents, is explained. It is felt that Zhang made just huge killing incident explanation's liutiao Lake incident, Foundation Manchukuo Japan's history textbooks and so makes no difference. History of the Chinese people's anti-Japanese war continues and the late. In addition to the Chinese in the main scene, description of English, Japan. There are some gruesome scenes photos, caution is advised. I went on a weekday many Chinese organizations that came to visit. Admission is free of charge. From Shenyang station takes about 30 minutes by taxi.
