The second floor consists of the Gallery of Bashu Bronze Wares, Dafeng Gallery (Zhang Daqian’s Art Gallery), Chinese Painting and Calligraphy Gallery and the Gallery of Porcelain. The third floor is composed of the Gallery of Tibetan Buddhism, Gallery of Buddha Statues from Wanfo Temple, Gallery of Sichuan Ethnic Culture Relics and Gallery of Arts and Crafts, which mostly reflect the folk customs of Sichuan.
