Well-curated displays showcase Buddhist artwork, artifacts uncovered at Anpji Pond and items unearthed during incredible archeological digs. Visitors can wander halls full of ceremonial items from long lost dynasties, golden crowns, pottery and hand-made bells.

Most of the displays are well-marked with English descriptions and audio tours are available for visitors who prefer even more information.
