Dedicated to the collection of paleontological, botanical and
anthropological specimen , this museum boasts more than one hundred
thousand exhibits.While some are type specimen, some others are
rare and precious treasures such as the
Upstream Yangchuanosaurus, Tsintaosaurus, Psittacosaurus specimen
and some well-preserved dinosaur egg fossils and footprint
fossiles. The carnivorous Yangchuanosaurus from the later Juraasic
era sustained a body length of over 8 meters and body height of 4
meters; the Herbivorous Tsintaosaurus from later cretaceous ear
sustained a body length of 6.
62 meters and a body height of 4.9 meters while the Herbivorous
Psittacosaurus had a body of only 70 centimeters. Some imported
collections include :the Moa fossils from New Zealand,sloth,
Echidna, Lyrebird from Australia, La Diman fish from Africa. Some
exhibits are taxidermy ,some others are fossils .
All play a very important role in the evolutionary link and have
very important academic value.
Here you will find the exhibition in four sections : the
Paleontology Section, the zoological section , the botanical
section and the anthropological section. Diversified and advance
techology like slides projector, video technology are employed to
illustrate the evolution process from the single cell life to a
diversifed world, from the lowest level to the highest, from
water-born life to the modern world.
In the paleontology hall you can see the 22 meters-long
Mamenchisaurus from 140 million years ago and the 6 meters
long and 2 meter tall Lufengosaurus from 180 million years
ago. Some reptiles that had the ability to fly are also on display.
Pterosaur and Ichthyosaur that lived in water are on display.
They went into extinction with the dinosaurs at the same time. The
zoological and botanical hall try to use the systematic evolution
of life on earth to make the public aware that it took millions of
years for life to be so diversified on this planet and we should
try to preserve them and protect the habitat we lived in.
Anthropology hall aims at illustrating the human evolution by using
paleo-anthroplogical, anthropological, anatomy and archeological
