Opened in 1988 and situated in one of the largest battlefield locales from China's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1937-45), the Eighth Route Army Taihang Memorial Hall boasts a collection of 8,000 cultural relics, primarily those related to the Eighth Route Army, an army under the command of the Communist Party of China during the Republic of China period (1912-49).

Covering 14.8 hectares, the memorial hall consists of 10 sites, including the exhibition hall of the Eighth Route Army, the kilometer-long scenario of the "cave war" setting, statues of the army's leaders, and a peace-themed park.

The highlight of the museum is the exhibition featuring the Hundred Regiments Offensive at Niangzi Pass in 1940. Against the backdrop of a painting of war scenes, the tough battle scene is recreated with acoustic and photo-electronic technologies, providing an immersive experience for visitors.
