Decently documented, 75% had English explanations as well, free to enter, takes about 30min and is a nice break from the park.

It is at the Black Dragon Pool Park's northern entrance, and is worth a visit if you have the time. The square hall at the back of the museum have collections of antique paintings also.

This museum is done really well and has comprehensive exhibits detailing the history and culture of the Naxi people. We also had a guide which helped even more to get the detail and information. Well set out and very worth a visit.

It has a few interesting displays and some information about the history of this group. You won't spend more than an hour there.

It's amazing to learn that the Dongba have a pictographic language of >2000 characters--and to see many documents in that language, with comparisons to others. However, one is left with very diffuse impressions of Dongba culture and life
