The collection covers over a million years of history, from prehistoric times to the mid-19th century.

One of the highlights of the collection are the fossils of the Lantian Man, who lived between 530,000 to a million years ago – older than the Peking Man.
There are four original Terracotta Warriors within the museum’s collection.
