The history of the dam and the gorges was explained and was very informative. It focused on the level of achievement it took to complete this mammoth project. Very impressive

I went to the museum because I happened to be close to it. The building itself looks impressive, but then I started to go through the exhibition. It was good until I came to the part about the Three Gorges Dam project. They actually wrote that the project was one of the greatest achievements of the Chinese civilization and will... More

The Museum and parkland give visitors a really thorough overview of this dam. I don't know if the hill it's on if man-made or not, but you've got a fabulous 360-degree view of the whole site. We had just the night before gone through the locks, so it was pretty cool to also see it from up above.

The square outside of the museum is a wonderful place to hang out but inside is where the jewels are. There are many displays of artifacts, well presented and easily accessed. I managed only one floor in the time I allotted but there are five floors to explore. You can see what life along the Yangtzee River was like over... More

At the time I was there, there were exhibitions about Chinese ceramics through the dynasties, coins and money, Chinese minorities in the South-West of China, sculptures of Han Dynasty, the ancient Ba Yu people, and of course, the Three Gorges (and other ones, I...
