Overall this is a nice museum. It covers not only the three gorges project, but also Chongqing history and various other topics. It is clean but the hallways are hot. However, the inside of the exhibit halls are air conditioned.

This place is truly amazing and worth a visit. It is so big and such a massive build and needs to be seen. The grounds are well kept. I was also fortunate to have travelled on a river cruise through the Three Gorges.

Heard about how people were originally forced from their homes, but to see how things have improved in terms of housing and employment is mind boggling. Most impressive is the re-forestation everywhere.

The museum's modern building differs from the traditional architecture of the people's square and the administrative buildings around it. Its three floors contain a rich collection of artifacts that describe the region's host from prehistoric times. The collections of Chinese porcelain and traditional writing are...More
