Located on Changzhou Island in Huangpu, Guangzhou, the Museum of Huangpu Military Academy was a brand-new military academy built by Sun Yat-sen during the Great Revolution with the assistance of the Communist Party of China and the Soviet Union. The academy was charged with the mission of "building a revolutionary army and saving China from danger" and observed the school motto of "Fraternity, Dexterity and Sincerity". It fostered revolutionary military talents by drawing upon the Soviet Union's army building experience, and produced a significant number of generals and military officers, thus playing an important role in China's early modern history and military history.

The academy had seven intakes in Huangpu before it was relocated to Nanjing in 1930. Its principal campus was destroyed by Japanese bombing in 1938. In 1988, the academy was declared a national-level protected site. In 1996, the Guangzhou Municipal Government restored the principal campus of the academy to its original conditions, bringing it back to its former glory.
