A lot of priceless cultural relics, such as the Wanli Emperor's filigree crown, Baiziyi and jade bowl, will be exhibited intensively.

Highlighting vital historical events, historical figures and social life, the exhibition mostly consisted of high-quality relics of from the Ming dynasty and was enriched by the excavation of Dingling tomb.

The exhibition is divided into three parts to break the limitations of a monotonous relics exhibition. They are: "A Long Time Passes as the Emperor Holds No Court," "A Colorful Society" and "An Emperor's Luxurious Tomb." The exhibition shows the social composition of the Ming dynasty panoramically in its own words and reflects the clues and characteristics of the Ming dynasty's development with events introduced by relics and history narrated by stories.
