Free entrance - a fine place if you want to laze around looking and learning a bit of the past military history. Really nothing much to see. The big field had uneven patches of grass.

We stopped by for a few minutes so we could say we did. It was okay but really all there was to see was two guards and some yellow buildings. Don't go out of your way for this.

This site is well described in English as well as Chinese. Gives a great explanation of military development and importance of Kunming as a military centre. I wish there had been a bit more on the importance of Kunming as the retreat capital in WW2,...More

As I was stating near this museum I decided to visit. The museum isn't particularly large, but what they have is well displayed and has English explanations. I think it is well worth a look if you are in the Green Lake Park area.

The Military School is right on the side of the park in the centre of Kunming, so it's well worth dropping into on your strolls. As a free attraction, it's worth a look. Though it is no longer in use, there are a few examples...More
