Went to the Three Gorges Museum on March 18, 2015. The museum is free and is right across from the people's hall so you can see 2 sights in a short period of time. There is a nice history of the three gorges area and you get to see exhibits detailing the history of Chongqing as well as WW2. There... More

This was a very large and spread out museum, with a lot of exhibits that were of little or no interest to me personally. It does portray a lot of information on the environmental and relocation impact of the Three Gorges Dam. The engineering marvel came at a great cost to China's history. Personally the Chongqing Art Museum was time... More

The museum is on 3 floors, covering large area, it will take at least 1 or 2 hours to see all the items. The museum has 2 cinemas, one is showing a movie about the three gorges dam, and the other cinema is presenting a movie about WWII struggle of Chongqing people against Japanese fascists.

In addition to the above mentioned four exhibition halls, there are "history painting", "ancient porcelain", "ancient coins", "Han Dynasty sculpture" and many other halls. However, I would say if...

There's a lot of interesting things to see and learn about there. It is worth the trip. Especially liked the displays under the glass floor and learning about chongqing' s role during wartime.

The Three Gorges Museum is on the first floor. Obviously the information is skewed pro-government, but there is information about the people and the natural landscapes. The huge slabs of stone carved with characters and art were breathtaking. The Three Gorges section took me about 30 minutes to get through. Upstairs are sections on the history of the city and...

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
