The museum is situated in Wanping County near the Lugou Bridge where the July 7th Event took place. Set up in 1987, the museum is composed of three comprehensive halls, three specialized halls (atrocities of Japanese army, the People’s war, and the anti-Japanese heroes) and one half-panorama art gallery.
It houses 3800 photos and materials, and 5000 cultural relics. The comprehensive halls display the whole process of Anti-Japanese War. The specialized exhibition on Japanese army’s atrocities includes the recovered scenes of notorious 731 bacteria army and Nanjing Massacre.
The exhibition on the people’s war retrieves the grand scenes of the brave struggles and the movements to save the nation from extinction. Introductions to the famous Taierzhuang, Pingxingguan and 100-Battalion campaigns can also be found on the exhibition.
