The first part consists of the ancient architecture complex of Xiannongtan. The building, also named Mountains and Rivers Shrine, was the place for the Ming and Qing emperors to offer sacrifices to such deities as Xiannong, Taisui, and the Gods of mountains and rivers.

The second part shows in a systematic way the evolution of ancient Chinese architecture with exhibits kept in Taisui Hall and Yu Hall.

The museum keeps a model of the old city of Beijing (the largest sand table model in China), the covert ceiling in Longfu Temple in Beijing (the only survival of its kind), and a model of Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest in Temple of Heaven.
