As one of the cooperative pavilions, the Anthropology Museum of Guangxi showcased a set of excellent works and became popular among American audiences. The museum has also traveled to European countries to participate in cultural events to promote the unique ethnic culture to overseas audiences.

In addition, the museum has established cooperation mechanisms with Japan National Museum of Ethnology, the National Museum of Korea, and the National Daegu Museum for strengthening exchanges and communication.
