The Baiheliang Underwater Museum was officially completed and opened in 2009. The original appearance of the inscription is protected by the principle of "pressure-free container". Visitors can take the escalator down to the underwater viewing corridor and see the protective cover clearly through the viewing window. The inscription of Baiheliang lying still in the water.

Baiheliang, literally "White Crane Ridge", is a 1,600-meter-long and 25 meter-wide smooth stone ridge engraved with inscriptions about China's longest river in the Tang Dynasty to the early 20th century. On the huge rock are 20 fish sculptures that serve as water-level markers and about 30,000 characters of Chinese poems from different dynasties. It is claimed to be the world's oldest hydrographic survey device and is one of the four state-level national treasures in the Three Gorges area.
