This museums shows the history around yangtze river and 3 gorges. It has 4 floors and also a well known 360 degree cinema that shows a tour along the 3 gorges. Well, when I was there, 1 projector broke, so it was only 300 degree cinema. I find it so so, but it left me with a strong propaganda after... More

An architecturally interesting museum both inside and out. Beautiful presentations of the history, people, and geography. Exhibits were presented elegantly, guiding the visitor through fascinating spaces. Not to be missed!

There is an interesting cyclorama of a trip down the river and there are some excellent cultural displays. Also there are displays about the development of the city over the centuries. Worth half a day.

Free Admission! The museum encompasses of artefacts discovered along the site of the rivers leading to the Three Gorges Dam and the way of life of the people living along the coasts before the villages got submerged due to the project. What I disliked about the museum was while there were plentiful signs all over the museum reminding visitors to... More

Although not the biggest or richest museum you'll find when visiting the Yangze area, you can learn quite a bit from this nicely structured museum. Some exhibits unfortunately look unpolished and a big kitch but the pieces shown are all of great quality. Worth spending a few hours.

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
