This prison is very interesting to visit. It has many English captions and the place is not something you will see often in mainland China. It teaches you a sad chapter of history in which Chinese people suffered at the hands of Japanese soldiers.

The museum set up was well above expectation as information was well displayed. It would’ve been nice to have some more detailed explanation about the military conflicts (there was a hall dedicated to some old bomb shells and weapons that are still preserved) as most...More

Sad what the Japanese did to Chinese and Korean soldiers and patriots. The torture room and hanging room are not for the squeamish. But it needs to be seen and not swept under the carpet. Besides the large jail there are historical displays of the...More

It's a sober and serious but otherwise inspiring attraction, taking you back to another era, not too distant, when Japan and Russia fought over this piece of China.

We visited this place recently. It's in Lushun, about an hour cab drive from our hotel in center of Dalian. If you like history, we recommend you pay a visit here. Interesting place that you feel the weight of history and war.

I am very glad I chose to take the 1.5 hour bus from Dalian to get here, followed by a taxi. The prison is in rather good shape for a historical building in China and is comparable with other prisons in other countries of its...More

Good visit and worthy for an entire afternoon, specially if you are interested in history (Manchurian period in China). The serenity and air of the past prison cells reminded me of my similar visit to the concentration camp in Dachau, Germany, except this was a...More
