At the entrance price of 10¥ per person, you get access to the hall. You can climb the stairs and observe the hall, its stage and beautiful roof from all the seat levels and see some photographs about the history of the Assembly hall.
Right across from the People assemble hall is the three gorges museum, which is a free museum to visit.

From outside, the building is magnificient and you don't know what to expect inside, or its purpose. It reminded me in a way of the Sun Yat-Sen (Zhongshan) Memorial Hall in Guangzhou, by its mixed architecture from different eras.
Some people complain that the inside is not worth visiting, but for 10 RMB, you can afford pay your contribution to such beautiful piece of architecture, especially when you know it's housing a large theater inside. Take the time to get yourself in the atmosphere, and don't miss the history of its construction, on the 3rd floor. I think the inside is still beautiful, especially with its coupole at the top.
There is a little museum on the right side of the entrance, for free. Half of it is dedicated to advertise for the sponsors which paid to built the museum, so you don't know if you are in a souvenir shop or a museum. If you don't want that to happen to the theater (Chongqing People's Grand Hall), then you won't mind paying 10 rmb.

Beautiful from the outside! Take photos and leave. If you pay the price to enter, you will walk up stairs and see an empty theater. We didn't see anything else to explore so we were back outside in less than 10 minutes.

Chongqing People's Grand Hall is very beautiful and i like this kind of Chinese style. It looks like a grand red jewelry standing there!

There is a large square in front of this building. Many people would like to wander here with their dogs. but i heard that the dogs are refused to come now

Sometimes I get into architecture when I'm traveling, so when I saw the People's assembly hall flash by in one of those "Chongqing from above" Youtube-clips, i decided that I needed to go see it. And it was worth it, the building has that traditional fell to it, although I assume it to not be that old. But as seed it has a genuine feel to it and feels massive. If you are at the Three Gorges Museum you should definitely turn around and snap a few photos of this building, or if you for any other reason are in the neighborhood.

We did not actually go inside the People's Assembly Hall. I'm not sure how accessible it is to the general public. My review is based on this large park-like setting that surrounds this structure. There's a lot of nice landscaping, there's ample shade and there are things to buy and eat. It was an hour well-spent by our tour group. Chongqing is in general a very hilly, pretty city (a huge city as well).

The resemblance of this building to the Temple Of Heaven in Beijing is obvious, but that's where it ends.
From a short peek inside it (we did not feel the need to pay for getting inside), it looked quite overwhelming, which is why I recommend only to view it from the outside and get a couple of photo-ops from the nearby square (next to the Three Gorges museum).

Built to resemble the Temple of Heaven in the 1950's this building has become an icon in Chongqing. Outside it looks both beautiful and imposing and is the obvious place to visit after viewing the excellent Three Gorges Museum (which is opposite). Inside is another story.If you are a big fan of theatre design maybe give it a look, but charging 10rmb just to look around what is a highly unremarkable and old fashioned (not in a good way) theatre, is taking the p***. Take my advice and go to the museum, take a photo of the outside of this building and then go home!
