“A Museum to miss”

Nanhu Revolutionary Memorial Hall
Ranked #3 of 42 things to do in Jiaxing
Type: Other
Attraction details
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The museum is huge and largely dependent on visitors reading long passages (written in Mandarin) about the history of Communism in China. On one visit, no English audio-translators were available, so we quickly looked at the displays, paintings and occasional diorama but most of the information was lost to us. Having been there before, I know that you learn much about propaganda and the Chinese interpretation of 20th century history. However, the building is not heated, so it can be very uncomfortable in cooler weather.

The huge museum contains literally thousands of exhibits about how the communist party came to power.

With free entry, and very popular with domestic tourists, the nanhu revolutionary memorial is definitely worthy of a visit if you are already in the area.

The museum is a huge, fine-looking structure that is free to enter (security personnel check bags at the door). It's a popular pilgrimage site for Communist party members, military personnel, and people interested in the history of the party and the revolution that saw it come into power. Four or five floors of exhibits include tons of real artifacts of the era along with all kinds of paintings, sculptures, models, photos, video, text, and displays large and small. There's the usual gift shop within and a separate concession area, which wasn't open on the slow, cold day we visited. Shanghai visitors can hire a cab for the day (at reasonable price) to take them to nearby Jiaxing attractions. Though, leave early and return early to beat the traffic.

Rocks are admirable. The toilets are clean. Fishing can be a option if you take the old boats that are up for rent. Unique to the place are the old rocks and trees.

Very biased but gives a different perspective of the PRC. takes about 2 hours to do the three floors, main info boards are in chinese and english but the displays only in chinese so a translator is required. the displays show headphones as if a ausio track is available but I was not offered one at the reception. entry is free but a ticket needed from reception
