  1. Went there by taxi from GZ as it is rather off th beaten track. It's a couple of kilomtres past the 1911 Revolution Museum. Fare was 80 Yuan but we got the taxi drive to wait in the carpark a couple of hours and then drive us back all for 300 Yuan. There's a small 'private' museum off the car park, there's a patrol boat in front of it, with a couple of old tanks, a few AA guns and a ancient jet (no engine) etc. inside.  The memorial academy is behind the present academy. Don't take photos of the new buildings. Just follow the road and you'll come to the ticket office, No charge for tickets. We were not asked for ID but it's a good idea to carry passport or something with your photo on it. Come out of the office and turn left, the memorial is about 70 metres.  When we went (September, 2016) many rooms were closed for building work.  The 'tourist' route is signposted. Good displays about the 'old boys and girls' but the best bit for Americans is at the end of The Great Parlour, two rooms devoted to the Flying Tigers. Lots of photographs and mementoes with English explanations.  Be aware there are steep stairs in the academy if you want to see the living and class rooms!  When we finished we walked back to the ticket office, about 40 metres past it is Premier Sun's Memorial Rooms but in reality is the old customs house built, I think, by the British. A glimpse into the trade that went on in the 19th Century and some of the characters involved. Only a couple of rooms out of the dozens in the building and there's another building. Scope for expansion! The whole area is steeped in 19th Century history but we didn't have the time to explore Dane's island as it was called by the Brirish.

  2. Huangpu Military Academy was a joint Nationalist/Communist venture set up in the 1920s. It was intended to train military officers. The museum itself is free and also very informative. Most of the museum has English translations so you can learn a lot about the history of China and the academy's role in it.

  3. As people have mentioned before, this place was a joint effort by, both the nationalist and communist to train. Although they did go their own ways, in the end. The exhibition of pictures, and training rooms, barracks with English descriptions, were a great help to us foreigners, with the history of all the people who past through those doors, A great place to visit, even if your not a history buff
