I visited this museum and was pleasantly surprised. For one, it was well laid out, clean and appears fairly new. The museum is free, which adds to its appeal. Like many museums in China, there are not a lot of English translations. The main exhibit hall summaries have English translations and the items in the cases have brief English descriptions. However, you're in even better shape if you can read Chinese. If you can not read Chinese, all is not lost. Some portions of the exhibits are about American aid and those letters can be read easily enough and there are some American propaganda films. Also, there are lots of photographs and paintings to keep you engaged. Much of the focus in the main building is on Zhou En Lai, the Eighth Route Army and the Anti-Japanese War. Chongqing can get very expensive very quickly, so if you're looking for something cheap to do, this is a great option. It is not, however, close to other major destinations, but there are buses that go from the Hall very close to Jeifangbei or Ci Qi Kou, other major places of interest

This museum/exhibition hall is part of a property, once a farm, occupied by Communist Party leaders when Chongqing was the seat of the Chinese Government. There's an interesting collection of buildings and gardens, Mao's writings and poetry and other memorable activities.

Hongyan is historically important for two reasons. First, it is where the CCP eighth route army was headquartered and thus where Zhou En Lai and some other famed CCP members resided during WWII. Second, Hongyan was where Mao and Chiang Kai Shek signed the Double Ten agreement in 1945 temporarily ceasing conflict and recognizing the legitimacy of the CCP and KMT respectively.

Everything here is free which is a plus. There is a large museum with very few English explanations. Behind the museum there are a collection of buildings including the eighth route army hq where you can see Zhou's old office. There didn't seem to be anything commemorating the Double Ten agreement. The grounds are peaceful and quiet. Overall I liked it but unless you have a real interest in the history of this place there's no reason to go.
