There is a lot or open space. It could do with more spectacular exhibits. I best liked the exhibits dealing with the Japanese invasion.

Arrived there as English tourist. Nearly impossible to get tickets. You needed a Chinese phone number and name to book free tickets via wechat.
We did manage to get tickets with the help from some very helpful people.
So pleased as really enjoyed wandering around the museum for an hour.

Massive museum with large volume of information. One down side as a foreigner is there was no information regarding what it took to enter.. security just laughed and waved me in.

Lots of interesting things to see. Plenty of good information in about the history and engineering behind the Three Gorges Dam project, and other things. A lot of the information is in both English and Chinese.

Two minor things to be aware of: we were there with kids, and it may be easy for them to get into trouble, especially around the centre of the building, in higher floors, where it would be relatively easy to fall over the guardrail and plunge a few floors. There are signs against this, but higher safety guards would be better. Outside, the surfaces can be very slippy, especially after/during rain. there are lots of stairs nearby, so the slippy surfaces can also be a worry.

Apart from the minor safety issues, I would certainly recommend this excellent museum.

Very great museum. Explained the background and history of the Three Gorges program.
Please be informed that there is a sub branch museum in Fuling of Chongqing-Baiheliang Underwater museum, which is quite unique.

Safely arrived in Chongqing, after several days and I went to this place for the first time. Three Gorges Museum is full of historical information that we I'm learning from it.

You will learn so much about how the Chinese lived and be amazed at what you see. There is so much history there. It is a most see. If you go see the people’s hall you will be across the entrance of the hall. There is a place to relax and feed the pigeons also.

I was last there in 2017.

I was in Chongqing for a day and my friends took me to see this Museum. Chongqing on it's own is very beautiful, almost surreal. Getting to the museum, we took the metro and the experience was futuristic, like something of the movies.
Near the Museum are several other interesting landmarks. The Museum was interesting, so many exhibit halls. We went through all the open halls and had a nice time.

Only shortfall for me was the pricing in the several souvenirs shops. The most attractive souvenirs were too expensive. In the end, I got just two small pieces.

We learned so much about the Three Gorges Dam and found the visit to this museum very interesting and informative. A must-see if you are in Chongqing!

The displays about both the Three Gorges and the history of Chongqing were really interesting and worth seeing. While there is not a lot of English (more in the displays about the Three Gorges than the Chongqing history displays) the pictures were so interesting. The view over to the magnificent government building is also a highlight. It is easily accessible from the metro too.
