  • The Museum of the province of Yunnan, newly installed in a large ultra modern building opposite the new opera, some 30 minutes from the city center, is really worth to be visited. We learn a lot about the history of Yunnan (since pre-history), its traditions, the flourishing arts of the ancient dynasties (remarkable collection of jewelry, statues of Buddhas). (free entry, 9-17 h, closed on Monday) (There might be a little more guidance in English for the particular dates, but is not so bad)

  • 相比南京博物院之类的博物馆显得没有多少当地特色,去看过两次展览,记得比较深的是有段时间抽象画的展览,平时一直有的是恐龙和青铜器等。  more »

  • 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.
