Had a great time here. The museum is very big but still well organized. And the best of it is it’s free! Make sure you check out the gift shop too which isn’t overpriced like many others.

Well worth a visit. The 3 gorges dam is an amazing feat of engineering.The actual scale of what the Chinese had to do to build this dam is simply mind blowing. Before building, the Chinese built a trial prototype . The museum has 3 floors.

The museum could have been really good if they had English captions. They only have that in one room on ground floor :-(

Big outside, but nothing special inside. If you want to relax on sunday afternoon, in the square there are a lot of Chinese people and you can enjoy with lifestyle.

This is a quite large museum with many different departments. There are texts in english at the first floor, but no in every ather floor. That didn't bother us, because there is so much to see that you just don't have time to read everything....More

Interesting museum. Not all displays have English descriptions. Free headsets give some descriptions, but not always in sync with where you are standing.
