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

Now that's no longer required. Although even one Chinese had ever told me that some parts at Lüshunkou are closed but that's not anymore.
