Viewing the museum was a comprehensive introduction to the Yangtze river history and the building of the Three Gorges Dam. I would skip the movie as it was of very poor quality. Your time will be better spent viewing the museum.

Take a few minutes and visit this museum. It is free and very interesting. It is impressive to see the engineering involved in building the dam. You can also take an escalator to the top of the mountain and see the surrounding countryside.

If you have the time, well worth going. No entrance fee, beautiful and very well maintained. Not too busy

This three gorge dam is quite an engineering project. It is massive and controls flooding along the Yangtze River. It is the largest hydroelectric power station in the world.

Well worth a visit, many displays, not only of the dam but historic China, through many dynesties. Would need a few hours to see all.

The on screen presentation was in Chinese with English subtitles at the beginning which disappeared the moment the narration started. I know a little Chinese and even found that it went on for too long. Many people (including the Chinese conversant ones) left before the...More

Had a great time here. The museum is very big but still well organized. And the best of it is it’s free! Make sure you check out the gift shop too which isn’t overpriced like many others.

Well worth a visit. The 3 gorges dam is an amazing feat of engineering.The actual scale of what the Chinese had to do to build this dam is simply mind blowing. Before building, the Chinese built a trial prototype . The museum has 3 floors.
