The name is a little misleading because only 10% of it is about the three gorges project. Half of it keeps cultural relics of the region history and the rest about the usual political propaganda: the Japanese attacks, the generous USA aid, … The items...More

The three gorges dam was a very controversial project, particularly because of its huge impact to the environment. Nevertheless, this museum will have you believe that this project was necessary and a great achievement. Well, it is, from an engineering perspective. There is even a...More

We enjoyed the museum very much. It was crowded and our host couldn't find parking, so he had to stay in the car as we viewed the museum with our hostess. We did not watch the movie and do anything extra because we didn't want...More

Thanks to our guide we've enjoied the great Museum; it's a compendium of Chinese culture, since it's composed by all the monuments and relicts of the villages along the river, after the Dum's construction.
