There was only 1 exhibit directly connected to the Three Gorges Dam. I was hoping for more about the engineering, although the Chinese Government's perspective on the negative effects had an interesting spin. The other exhibits didn't have much connection to the dam. The gift...More

This museum is excellent and tells the history of the Three Gorges region. There are four levels of exhibits containing a wide range of artifacts. Admission to the Three Gorges Museum is free! I highly recommend visiting this museum.

the visit gives you a good general orientation of where you are relative to Chongqing and general knowledge plus history of the gorges. I also enlighten you to places that you never thought of visiting.

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.

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.
