Article from Yunnan Nationalities Museum

The Yunnan Nationalities Museum, adhering to the core value of museum education and the tenet of serving the general public and building China into a strong nation of socialist culture, has attracted more than 6 million visitors with various exhibitions, extracurricular activities for high school students, thematic lectures, community-based family education sessions, school-museum and inter-museum cooperation, construction of patriotism and popular science bases, public services, thematic education programmes, volunteer team building efforts and museum membership since its establishment.

The Yunnan Provincial Museum in Kunming houses an important collection of early bronzes (Warring States through Western Han period) that were excavated from royal burials at Shizhai Shan and other locations in the vicinity of Lake Dian. This part of Yunnan, whose people and language were not originally Han Chinese, had been ruled by an independent Dian kingdom from about 500 BC; bronzes from this period through middle Western Han (about 100 BC) are unique to the region, and share many characteristics with bronze artifacts of Southeast Asia. Their decoration, with predominant themes of animal combat and hunting, was also influenced by artistic styles of the Eurasian steppe.

The Yunnan Nationalities Museum, as an important window open to the outside world and a spiritual home of all ethnic groups in Yunnan, is now playing an important role in publicizing the outstanding Chinese cultural heritage and promoting the national unity.
