  • Impressive new building further outside the centre of town (moved from the previous site in 2015), meant we had to get a bus and metro to reach it. Positives: brand new, free, varied exhibits, pretty much empty as not sure many people know about it/can be bothered to travel out to it, some interesting artefacts, especially the ceramics and some of the Yunnan specific history and ethnic clothing. Negatives: English signs and descriptions leave a lot to be desired by just labelling the item and frequently not even dating the objects, perhaps the 20 yuan audio guide would be worth it as a lot of the additional info with exhibits is only in Chinese. This made it a bit dull to walk around the 3 huge floors after a while. Cafe has no English and pretty poor selection. Also no signs for which direction to walk around the floors, found ourselves going back in time on a couple of occasions. Worth a visit if you have a decent amount of time in Kunming, if on a tight schedule then wouldn't suggest the trip out and the 3 odd hours required to walk around are worth it.
