Since the 1950s, Yunnan Provincial Museum has carried out hundreds of scientific archaeological excavations, trial excavations and investigations in the whole province, including several major archaeological excavations with great influence:

From 1955 to 1960, four large-scale archaeological excavations were carried out in Shizhaishan ancient tomb group in Jinning. The tomb has become a typical representative of bronze culture in Dianchi Lake area, which is called "Shizhaishan culture" (also known as "Dian culture") by the world archaeology circle. 50 tombs of the Western Han Dynasty were excavated in the cemetery, and more than 4000 artifacts were unearthed, especially the golden "seal of the king of Yunnan" was found in tomb 6, which confirmed the record of "Yunnan" in "historical records · biography of the southwest Yi".

Lijiashan ancient tomb group excavated in 1972 is another important site of Shizhaishan culture. There are 27 ancient tombs excavated in the cemetery, more than 1300 pieces of various cultural relics from the Warring States period to the Han Dynasty, further enriching the connotation of Yunnan culture. Among them, the most representative are a group of bronze textile tools, including warping rod, brush shaped tool, shuttle knife, bow shaped tool, spinning wheel, needle box, cylinder, cone, needle, winding board, etc., which are important materials for the study of Yunnan textile history.

From 1975 to 1976, 79 ancient tombs were excavated in Wanjiaba, Chuxiong, in the spring and Autumn Period - the Western Han Dynasty. There are 1245 unearthed cultural relics, of which the most important one is the five bronze drums of the spring and Autumn period. This is also the earliest bronze drum found in the world so far. From 1977 to 1982, the ancient tombs of batatai, Zhujie, Qujing were excavated seven times in succession. On the huge mound more than 7 meters high, the ancient tombs of the Eastern Zhou Dynasty and the Ming Dynasty are piled on top of each other. Among them, from the Eastern Zhou Dynasty to the Han Dynasty, more than 200 pieces of cultural relics such as bronzes, pottery, jade ware, etc. have been unearthed in the tombs, among which the most important ones are bronze drums, bronze cauldrons, buckles, spears, spears, swords, pottery tripods, etc. The tombs of Nanzhao and Ming Dynasties are crematorium with few burial objects, but the forms of crematorium pots are complex and diverse, which provides a scientific basis for the stages of Yunnan crematorium. The burial area of batatai ancient tomb has lasted for nearly 2000 years and experienced several dynasties. This peculiar phenomenon is rare in the history of Chinese archaeology.

As a major province of national culture, archaeological excavation has proved that the diversity of Yunnan's history and culture is consistent with that of multi-ethnic provinces. Over the past 50 years, Yunnan Provincial Museum has more than 190000 bronzes, ancient coins, ceramics, ancient calligraphy and painting, tablet stickers, stamps and various arts and crafts after years of archaeological excavation, investigation and collection, social acquisition and donation.
