At present, there is an exhibition of the finest unearthed cultural relics from the Dingling Tomb in the hall.

The architecture of the underground palace of Dingling Tomb is deep and mysterious. A total of about 3,000 pieces of precious cultural relics, such as the emperor's and empress' crowns and gold and silver vessels, have been unearthed, which are rare physical materials for the study of the history of the Ming Dynasty.
