I enjoy salamanders and have always wanted to see one. In July 2020 there was two specimens at the entrance to Baofeng Lake Scenic Area in a gift shop. The specimens I saw were about 76 and 61 cm long and were cool to check out. This is by no means a museum and it is free to go in after health and temperature check. The salamanders are in a tank in the gift shop right before the x-ray machine so no need to buy a ticket to enter but you can if you'd like to see Baofeng Lake. I spent about 10 minutes here. If you're into giant salamanders then it is worth a quick stop. This is close to Xebu Street and the Zhangjiajie National Forest Park East Gate. We made a quick stop here on the way to the east gate which is about a 5 minute Didi ride away. The Didi address is Baofeng Lake Scenic Area (Entrance & Exit).

It is not a museum. There is just a souvenir shop next to the entrance of Baofeng Lake with 3 salamanders in a cage in the back. Definitely not worth to go here just to see the salamanders. But if you are going to Baofeng Lake (highly recommended) it is ok to stop for 3 minutes. Note, you are not allowed to take pictures of the salamanders.

I don't know that I would call this a museum - but they do have 3 very large salamanders that was very cool to see! I never knew they got this big. Easy to see when going to Baofeng lake.

We saw three of them in glass tanks. Since the building of the 3 Gorges Dam, their numbers have reduced and are now hardly seen in the wild although we saw a few for sale in the markets. Poor authority control to allow them to be killed and eaten

Not a museum but more of a backroom souvenir shop on the road to Baofeng Falls and Lake, the "Giant Salamander Museum" is worth a stop because you will see, in open lucite terrariums, salamanders the size of German Shepard. Or a 7-year old child. The are big, dark, impressive and just sort of sitting there at your feet in the water. It's the sort of thing where you go "Holy [expletive]", look for a bit and head back to your tour van. If you are heading to the falls or lake, check it out.
