  • No time to travel the entire three gorges? Just visit the museum and it will bring you thru the gorges a 3D tour. I also learnt about Chongqing at WWII in another section of the museum.  more »
  • Convenient to Skytrain but walking out of the train, exit the page Museum relations is quite remote. The building width mueaykwa walk to 3 floors to walk every point. Are in English or Chinese, through headphones, but with added gluten?

  • 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.
