How many world cities do you know of that have perfectly played their part in shaping their respective mother nation’s historical, ethnic and martial identity? We know of one such place. It is called Shenyang, it is the largest city in northeast China and the capital of Liaoning Province. It is home to 38 out of 56 ethnic groups in the country and a cumulative effect of the same is evident in the city’s architecture and culinary arts alike. It was in Shenyang that the Imperial Japanese Army had defeated Imperial Russia’s Red Army in 1905 and Chinese Army in 1931. Once through with this Japanese mad max onslaught, Shenyang rapidly started to transform itself into a major industrial and martial behemoth during the 20th century. It has now graduated to host the headquarters of the People's Liberation Army's Northern Theater Command and some garrisons its Air Force besides being an important industrial center in the country.

It was at 22:30 hrs on 18 September 1931 when a bomb exploded beside a railway line near Shenyang. This insolence incensed the Japanese who were running the railway station there, and soon enough invaded and mercilessly subjugated the city. This museum unflinchingly displays the atrocities of that invasion through a number of photographs to yield a spine-chilling account of what had happened during the mayhem.
