Three gorges museum Features

Originally called the Chongqing Municipal Museum, this museum moved to its more modern and spacious location mid-2005. While still lacking a certain charisma, several items in this museum make the trip worthwhile. First is its lovely collection of Tang and Song heads carved out of stone. Most are of Buddha, Guanyin, and various bodhisattvas, but what distinguishes them are their human rather than heavenly miens. A fine collection of terra-cotta sculptures from an Eastern Han tomb is also o­n the display. Discovered in Chongqing north of the Yangzi, they are small, whimsical figurines of musicians, dancers, singers, and storytellers -- a lively group to spend eternity with. The museum also boasts collections that go back in time as far as the Shang dynasty (ca. 1600-1045 B.C.). Of particular interest are the paulownia-wood "boat coffins" of the ancient Ba culture.
Four Basic Displays:
Glorious Three Gorges which reflects the cultural and historical spirits of Three Gorges.
Ancient Ba-Yu which introduces the origin and development of Chongqing history.
Chongqing: the City Road which describes the changes of Chongqing City in the 20th century.
The Anti-Japanese War (1937-1945) which records the wartime ordeals of the people in Chongqing.
Six Themed Displays:
Paintings and calligraphies through the ages
Porcelains of various dynasties
Coins of various dynasties
Sculptures of the Han Dynasty (206BC-220)
Folk customs of the people of southwest China
Cultural relics donated by Li Chuli
Sculptures of the Han Dynasty
Another important exhibit is a 180 panorama of war torn Chongqing depicting the city, when as the provisional capital of China, it was subjected to substantial bombardment by the Japanese over several decades. There is also a 360cinema of Three Gorges that mainly shows the natural and social sceneries of Three Gorges prior to the construction of the dam project.
