Witness glorious history of “made in Chongqing”


At the museum, you can see an 8,000-horsepower steam engine manufactured in Britain in 1905, which is the most precious treasure of the museum. Chongqing is an old industrial city of China. The Chengdu-Chongqing railway and the first CQ260 military off-road vehicle were manufactured here. Of course, you can also see a Y-5 plane at the museum, which is China’s first-generation light versatile aircraft and manufactured by Chongqing Sanxia General Aviation Co., Ltd., the first private civil aviation business in China’s civil aviation history.

You can also see the power device chain used by China’s first river-crossing passenger cableway – Chongqing Jialing River Cableway. For building this cableway, Chongqing mobilized all quality resources and talents in 1980 and took over one year to open this cableway. It operated for 29 years and transported passengers for more than 100 million person-times.
