The section on the Three Gorges is quite good, though of course not without propaganda. The ancient Chinese art sections are uneven, but with outstanding 2000 year old Han Dynasty sculpture.

My wife and I, a sixty something couple, visited the museum on a wet day and found it absolutely fascinating. There are many exhibits not only of the Three Gorges Project but of the history of the region and its peoples, the Ba. The exhibits were first rate - we particularly liked the sculpture of the boat trekkers and the... More

I loved the location. You have to climb some steps to get to the doors. As you are in there are marble floors and four floor exhibitions to look at. My favorite exhibition the one on the Three Gorges.

Museaum showed the design of the Three Gorges. More interesting was the display of household things of people displaced by the project.

I did go there to get Information about the history of the dam, politically as well as technically. But there almost no such Kind of Information! The museam is talking about the ancient history of the Three Gorges, typical chinese Museum. 3 Levels, rather big At least for Europeans of limited interest

We visited this museum as part of an over-priced conference city tour, but the museum was a good way to get a perspective of the Three Gorges Dam project, as it was mean to be. We visited in May, and it was a below average tourist time, so we could take our time examining the displays, although we were in... More

The museum displays a lot of information about the Three Gorges project that flooded enormous areas. Too bad it is mostly in Chinese. It is free. Worth an hour or two visit. Wish they would clean the bathrooms.

I had visited the Three Gorges Museum both before the renovation and after the renovation as well as that area. The Museum both inside and outside and especially outside is large, very pretty, a real site to see.
