Completed and came into service in 1997, the Kunming Museum covers 20000 square meters and is a solemn and elegant architecture of primitive simplicity. With many elements of ancient Chinese architecture in the designs of the top, column, edge and girder, the building of Kunming Museum won an award as an excellent characteristic-built architecture in Yunnan Province. A local comprehensive museum in the city, Kunming Museum has three fixed exhibitions, namely, Bronze Culture Exhibition, Ancient Dhvaja (a Buddhism ornament architecture in temples carved with lections and Buddhas) Exhibition and Dinosaur Fossil Exhibition, and two temporary exhibition halls for irregularly scheduled themed exhibitions, which has launched over 130 influential exhibitions since its construction.

The five exhibitions

- Dinosaur Fossil Exhibition: Samples and models of dinosaurs are exhibited, imitating and explaining the process of the evolvement of the dinosaurs.

- Bronze Culture Exhibition: The Bronze Culture Exhibition displays the Bronze Age culture of the Dianchi District from the Spring and Autumn Periods (770BC-476BC) and the Western Han Dynasty (206BC-25AD).

- Sutra Exhibition of Dizang Temple: The sutras in Dizang (the Bodhisattva of Ksitigarbha) Temple are considered to be the masterwork of Yunnan culture. They are also major historic and cultural sites under national protection.

- Kunming City Exhibition:The "Kunming: a Historic and Cultural City" Exhibition includes two exhibition halls: the History Hall and the New Era Hall. These demonstrate the history, culture, scenery, and major achievements China has made in the last 20 years.
Temporary exhibitions are usually held in the Temporary Hall.
