On show include bronzewares of the Shang Dynasty (c.16th century-11th century BC), paintings of the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and Buddhist figurines, among many other categories of antiquity.
They, however, account for a small percentage of some 400,000 treasures acquired through donation or purchased from private collectors. Some of them were stolen and later recovered from overseas.
The exhibition runs through March 10.
