Accordingly, various exhibition forms are employed, such as historical documents, illustrations, cultural relics, models, replicas and miniature scenarios.
More than 100 items (sets) of cultural relics have been selected and displayed in the following 5 units: “Convergence of River and Sea", Commence of Port City (Warring States period to Tang dynasty)”, “Arriving of Merchant Ships, Thriving of Port City (Five dynasties to Yuan dynasty)”, “Port City and the World (Ming dynasty to 1840)”, “Great Changes of the World, Transition of the City (1840-1949)”, and “Unimpeded Connection to the World, New Story of Port City (contemporary era)”.
