We were on a tour and were traveling with American's, hence the reason for the stop at this run down Museum. Would have much preferred to go on the cable car whilst in Chongqing.

The museum is not really much as far as buildings go but when you realize how important this little location was to the effort to stop the Japanese atrocities at this time it is a must "experience". Chongqing was the capitol of China at this time and to understand that this was the Allied Headquarters, still fully intact brings a... More

I think we were taken to this museum because we're Americans, but unless you're a WWII buff, don't bother. It's a small and moldy cottage containing a lot of photos blown up into posters. Literally the only thing I found interesting about it was the proof from this that Nixon wasn't the first American to be accepted into China.

Did you know that the US helped China to defeat the Japanese before WWII? The US helped to build the Burma Road to bring supplies to the Chinese and shared their airplane technology to update the Chinese Air Force. This museum is dedicated to the American and Chinese soldiers who fought side by side. Their pictures line the walls. An... More

Not a magnificent museum, but for a pair of history nerds well-versed in the history of the Flying Tigers it was a must visit. Enough interesting pictures to be of interest for anyone who doesn't particularly like history or know about the Flying Tigers. This and the Stilwell house across the street aren't draw-dropping but that can be forgiven for... More

This residence and office of General Stilwell during World War Two contains many of the artifacts and pictures relative to that time period when America and China were wartime allies.

Great tribute to the men of the Flying Tigers. We just got back from amazing China tour with "Fun For Less" travel. The museum did a excellent job explaining the task of the Tigers.

Chongqing, China was known Chungking and during World War II it was China’s provisional capital. There are two museums that honor Americans who helped to protect the Chinese from Japanese aggression. One is devoted to the Flying Tigers and across the street is the General Joseph Stilwell museum. The Flying Tiger Museum is dedicated to the memory of the American... More

I traveled with a Gate1 tour group in April. We probably stayed around an hour at this museum and that was plenty of time for me. If you are a history buff and want to see more of the Chinese-US perspective of the war, than this museum will probably be pretty interesting to you. All of the photos were clearly... More

It is a matter of pride for the Chinese people, that during WW2 they successfully drove out the hated Japanese. At that time Chongqing was the most important city in China. It was from here the Chinese and the allies directed the Asian forces. The American General Stilwell, the flying tigers and Mitchell's marauders are all celebrated in this museum.... More
