There are more than 2,000 exhibits in Jinlin Provincial Museum. Generally speaking, its range from Wangfutun Man in Prehistoric Times (one million years before) to the Opium War (1839 - 1842) reflects the historical development of Jinlin Province.

The museum also searches for and gathers paintings handed down from ancient times but not collected by the Qing Dynasty government.
