Chongqing Natural History Museum displays approximately 70,000 objects dating back as far as the Paleolithic Age, and encompasses the usual child-pleasing exhibits of dinosaur bones and fossils, most of which were unearthed during the 1970s around Zigong, between Chengdu and Chongqing. The most impressive exhibits though, are the Tuojiang Stegosaur and the Omeisaurus Zigongensis Dinosaur both of which were excavated at Pipa Shan Gongyuan. The museum also holds pre-historic plant fossils and Stone Age tools used by primitive people living in the Sichuan Baisn.

In total, the museum holds over 70,000 relics and artifacts. It also has a bookshop and a giftshop.
