The Shenyang ''9.18'' Museum of History commemorates the events of the Sino-Japanese war, through its collection of weaponry, pictures, video and artworks. The museum has been built in a traditionally Mongol style, on the site of the first Japanese attack during the war, and aims to honor the memory of soldiers and civilians who both suffered and died during this tumultuous time in ''Chinese history''.

On the side of the building, ''September 18, 1931,'' is engraved. This was the date of the ''Mukden Incident,'' when Japanese forces committed an act of sabotage near Shenyang (then known as Mukden) which they blamed on the Chinese and used as a pretext for a full-scale occupation of northeast China.
