Yán’ān Revolution Museum

Museum in Yán'ān

By far the flashest building in town is the Yán’ān Revolutionary Memorial Hall (延安革命纪念馆; Yán’ān Gémìng Jìniànguǎn), fronted by a statue of Mao and housing this museum. It offers an excellent, if obviously one-sided, account of the CCP’s time in Yán’ān and the Sino-Japanese War. More English captions would be nice, but there are plenty of photos of the good old days and other exhibits that are self-explanatory. Bus 1 (¥1) runs here.

You can walk here in a few minutes southeast from the Wángjiāpíng Revolution Headquarters Site.
