  • This was a self guided at your own pace visit. I was with a tour but it was optional whether or not you wanted to visit or how long you stayed inside. We hit some of the high points on the main floor ...  more »
  • 里面除了介绍三峡 还有抗战时期的历史,旧代人民生活状态及用品等。位置是人民广场,和人民大礼堂对望,一次可游览两个景点。  more »

  • Good qualifiers
  • It's tough to rate when you just have a drink at the coffee shop, but it looks OK.
  • This is a wonderful museum and it was completely free to go into and look around. You will not find this in America. I absolutely found it educational and a great adventure. Even though I am not Chinese I like history. you will not be disappointed.
  • The museum is great. Don't miss the free panoramic movie which is a kind of substitute to the expensive sails along the three gorges.
  • It is a must see for those who are interested in ancient Chinese history.
