The most notable exhibitions underway at the museum include Echoes of the Nile: Exhibition of Ancient Egyptian Civilization and Dream Back to the Greater Era, with the former exhibiting over 200 ancient Egyptian relics and the latter displaying art and cultural relics from the Tang Dynasty (618-907).

The Tang-themed exhibition is being held by the Guangdong Museum, the Shaanxi Provincial Institute of Archaeology, the Luoyang Museum and the Xi'an Museum. It consists of three chapters, with exhibits focusing on things such as local customs, literature, social systems, and cultural relics related to famous people from the Tang Dynasty.

The Egyptian exhibition features relics from the Museo Egizio, an archaeological museum in Turin, Italy that specializes in ancient Egypt. The exhibition is divided into three sections, showcasing ancient Egyptian civilization from a variety of angles.

The two exhibitions will end on May 19 and March 20, respectively, and tickets are 30 yuan ($4.45) and 60 yuan for adults.
