A permanent exhibition themed on the Yangtze River and its ecology showcases the natural environment and history of the Yangtze River through typical cultural relics and specimens from the basin of the Yangtze River, such as specimens of giant pandas, the endangered Chinese sturgeon, the Chinese dove tree (davidia involucrate) which is dubbed the "living fossil" of plants, and Tibetan Tangka, bronze drums, and Liangzhu jadeware.

The museum’s exhibition hall has also created a large immersive program to enable visitors to get a good introduction to the natural beauty and cultural landscapes of the Yangtze River within 10 minutes.

By the end of 2019, the Yangtze River Civilization Museum had received 3.5 million visits and was highly praised by UNESCO.
