Anti-Japanese Aggression Museum: One Farmer's 2mln-Yuan Dream
Updated: 2014-04-11

The Memorial Museum of the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression welcomes as many as 30,000 to 40,000 people per year. Situated on a former battlefield near Ruzhou City, central China's Henan Province, the facility was the work of Wang Dengke, a 55-year-old farmer who spent around 2-million yuan (about 320,000 USD) on the museum, which first opened its doors to the public in April, 2002.

Covering around 2,000 square-meters, the two-story museum showcases over 200 pieces in its collection, including Japanese guns, various weapons and military equipment used in the war, along with historic photos of the war in China.

Besides the collection, Wang also restored the trenches constructed during the war around the museum.

The museum is open to visitors free of charge
