The exhibition hall keeps the famous tablet for Prince Zhongqin and his virtuous concubine. It was erected by Heta, the eldest grandson of Sangsai, Prince Zhongqin who was the grandfather of Emperor Shunzhi on May 7 of the 12th year under the rule of Shunzhi with an order of the emperor. Inscribed with Manchu and Mongolian characters, the tablet is also called “Stone Tablet in both Manchu and Mongolian”, locally known as “Kuli Tablet”. The tablet has been listed as a treasure protected at province level.

The Exhibition Hall covers 3,000 square meters. Of its three partitioned exhibition areas, the front one is devoted to a statue for the Mongolian woman named Jiebumubutai (Empress Xiaozhuang) sitting sideways made of glass fiber reinforced plastics to create a feeling of white marble; the east one is devoted to legends related to the Ancestors Mausoleum such as Xuezi Temple and Kunv Mountain while the west one is devoted to showing historic materials concerning ancestors of Empress Xiaozhuang in large-scale relievos and frescoes made of materials similar to bronze.
