Shown on 500 sq.m. in the second floor of the museum, many of the antiquities date back to the prehistoric period while others were found in My Son Sanctuary in Quang Nam province and the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long in Ha Noi.

They include stone and terracotta statues of sacred animals along with bronze bells.
