Those of you who like looking at military hardware will really like this. For the rest, it is still a fascinating look at the slightly biased historical accounts. The highlight for me was the chance to hold military equipment and fire.

Pleasant surprise. It was like walking through modern China history. The exhibits were interesting and better than I had expected. You may even meet old soldiers reminiscing their past and delighted to chit-chat with you. Very good for an history-idiot like me.
