Traditional museums focus on collection, research, exhibition and interpretation. With the development of society, especially the progress and innovation of science and technology, audiences have put many new requirements on museums. Therefore, museums must achieve new developments in promoting the most effective cultural communication, sustainable protection and utilization of collections, and sound development of the museum industry， so as to respond to social concerns. "Museum+" represents a wing for museums to soar and become better. It is not only a new development mode of museums, but also a new development concept. It is also a reform of museum cultural services.

II.Museum+Modern Science→Modern Museum
(1) The Underwater Museum of White Crane Ridge. The project started in 2003, lasted 7 years, and was completed in 2009. It was built on the original site using the principle of "no pressure vessel". High-tech deep water lighting, underwater protection-body diving, water purification and circulation systems and a high-strength and high-definition aviation glass observation window were all applied to the protection of cultural relics for the first time. The research and practice of the underwater protection project on the original site of Baiheliang (the white crane ridge) inscription won the first prize of the "2009 Cultural Relics Protection Science and Technology Innovation Award" from the State Administration of Cultural Heritage. UNESCO called it "the world's first underwater site museum that is not-diving accessible" in 2010 and won the FIDIC 2015 International Engineering Project Award.
III.Museum+Cooperation→Community for Joint Development of Regional Museums
(1) Win-win cooperation among museums of the same type in the municipality. The development model of taking our museum as the general one and other museums as branch ones has driven some museums in Chongqing to develop together. Such cooperative relations have been established with districts, counties and universities to promote joint development of regional museums.
(2) The development practice of cross-regional museum alliance. As the initiator, our museum unites 6 museums in Southwest China and 50 other museums to form the Southwest Museum Alliance with 56 members. Members carry out joint exhibitions, training and other activities. In 2018, "Feast-Witness to the Great Southwest in Records of the Historian" jointly organized by various members of the alliance received the" Excellence Award of Top Ten National Museum Exhibitions", the highest-level award in the exhibition industry in China. The exhibition is itinerant and moving among various alliance members.
