The primary exhibition at the Aurora Museum is centered on blue and white porcelains, ancient jades and Buddhist sculptures. In addition to displays arranged by time period, the museum has also set up special areas that provide supplementary analyses and displays for the aforementioned items from the perspective of medium (liao); the workmanship (gong); the form (xing); and the decorative motifs (wen). The museum also works to organize various special exhibitions which meet visitors' diverse demands.
