The Museum has established a science and technology center for the preservation of cultural relics. It has an advanced technology of examination and laboratory test and the means of repair and restoration. To promote international cultural exchanges, it has also set up a computer-controlled, international symposium hall where six different languages can be employed in the spontaneous interpretation.

In the Preface Hall of the museum, the massive picture that faces you show the surging and roaring Yellow River and the Vast Loess Plateau, which are the natural habitat of the Shaanxi residents and the cradle of Shaanxi ancient civilization as well.

The giant lion in the center was originally erected in front of Shunling, the Mausoleum of the mother of Empress Wu Zetian of the Tang Dynasty. Its exquisite craftsmanship and imposing look rank it the " No.1 Lion in the Orient". China's ancient stone lions and the technique of its sculpturing were introduced into the country from Afghanistan. So this lion is not only representative of the Shaanxi civilization, but also the product of the cultural exchange between the East and the West.

The exhibition can be divided into seven sections which emphatically reveal the Han, Wei, Jin, North and South, Sui, Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties. The exhibition vividly and systematically depicts Shaanxi history, ranging from 1,150,000 years ago up to the year 1840. In Chinese history, eleven dynasties established their capitals in Shaanxi Province, lasting more than 1000 years. It is the area that was made the country's capital by more dynasties and for longer periods of time than any other places in China. In a way, the ancient history of Shaanxi is a highly condensed version of Chinese history.
