The museum has delightful surroundings. Its exhibition hall shows the clear domestic house architectural style of Bai: 'Three rooms and one wall screening, four joints and five courtyards'. The layout of the Museum adopts symmetric forms. All of its constructions seem to be one integrated mass, reflected in the surrounding pines and cypress. The museum itself is a great architectural work of art of the Bai ethnic minority. It is indeed worth visiting.
Dali City has a history of more than 4,000 years. Nanzhao Kingdom (738-902) and Dali Kingdom (937-1253) were set up successively. Thus the museum has great cultural relics. It is a compilation of the area's history, through which you can appreciate the charms of the local historical civilizations.
