Ancient monuments, as well as antiquities, had been built according to art styles periods. Later, these antiques were continually stolen and smuggled to be sold as seen from the remaining bases with no Buddha images. However, there are still some antiquities left for later generations to learn. The museum holds a collection of valuable ancient artifacts. They were audited and registered for preservation in this museum. The exhibition includes the Royal Palanquin, silver niello ware spittoons, and a bow of a royal ship.
