  1. Zhangkoudong Palaeoanthropic Relics Museum in Jiuxiang,Kunming

Zhangkoudong Palaeoanthropic Relics Museum is located in the Male Lion Hall (xiónɡ shī dà tīnɡ) of Jiuxiang Underground Cave. Opened in 1999 and covering 120 square meters, the museum has been set to display palaeoanthropic relics, blind fish, pastoral photos and rare stones discovered and collected in Jiuxiang Area. The palaeoanthropic relics mainly include those excavated in Zhangkoudong Cave such as stone wares, teeth of human and animals etc, among which the most precious is a stone tool archeologically named“Duo Keng Shi Qi” (stone tool with dents)
