The Museum of Chinese Ancient Cars is divided into two parts: the Exhibition Hall of Chinese Ancient Cars and the Exhibition Hall of Martyred Cars in Spring and Autumn Periods. The exhibition hall of ancient cars is divided into three exhibition halls. In order of the times, the exhibition hall shows the generation, development, technological improvement of cars and the roles played by horses and vehicles in war, transportation, production and life through physical objects, models, restoration of ancient cars, pictures and words. The first exhibition hall, the first car for the Shang Dynasty Quheng car, is based on the data unearthed in Yinxu, Henan Province. It was followed by the Quheng Car, which was driven by two horses in the Western Zhou Dynasty. Spring and Autumn chariots are based on the recovery of Li martyred chariots and horses after Linzi.

It is a luxury carriage for the Chinese emperor. It can be divided into five types: jade, gold, leather, wood and elephant. The Liao Dynasty was a big camel car. Ming Dynasty is the emperor traveling like the control of Jin Bi. Vehicles and horses were the main means of transportation on land in ancient China. The stirrups, which were very important components of riding equipment, were first invented in China. In this respect, China has made great contributions to human civilization. Following the track of historical wheels, we entered the underground exhibition hall of horses and chariots killed in spring and autumn. This is also the site of the excavation of horses and chariots. It was discovered during the construction of Jiqing Expressway. After consultation with the cultural and transportation departments, special measures were taken to build the exhibition hall under the expressway. There are large parking lots on both sides, which can be parked and visited. The underground exhibition hall has a span of 15 meters. There are two rows of carriage and horse pits in the north and south. The length of pit No. 1 is 32 meters, and the width is 5 meters. There are 10 cars and 32 horses. The second pit is 8 meters long and 3 meters wide. There are 3 cars and 6 horses. The logs are rotten, but the traces of the car are left in the loess. The copper ornaments on the car are still well preserved in situ. The horse skeleton is well preserved, especially the decorations on the head and neck of the horse, which are particularly exquisite and varied in form.

In May 1990, an archaeological team of Shandong Province, cooperating with the construction of Jiqing Expressway, discovered a large car and horse pit in Hou Li Guan Village, Qiling Town, and excavated it in an all-round way. After excavation, it is found that the pit is divided into Pit 1 and pit 2. The Pit 1 is 32 meters long and 5 meters wide from north to south, with horses and chariots lined east to west, and 10 vehicles and 32 horses were killed. The west end of pit No. 2 is close to pit No. 1. It is 8 meters long and 3 meters wide. There are 3 dead cars and 6 horses. Unlike pit No. 1, the car is buried on two floors. The large number, scale, early age and well-preserved of horse martyrs in the whole Chema pit are rare in China. They have high archaeological and ornamental value and are listed as one of the top ten archaeological discoveries in 1990. In 1993, according to the history of Chema pit, the value of cultural relics and its position in the development of Qi culture, the government of Linzi District decided to protect them in situ, and to study, reproduce and display the different types of horses unearthed from different parts of the country in different periods, so as to build an ancient Museum series of carriages and horses.

On September 9, 1995, the Museum of Ancient Cars, with an area of 13600 square meters and a building area of 3600 square meters, was built and opened by the district government with an investment of 8 million yuan. Premier Tian Jiyun of the State Council and Defense Minister Zhang Aiping inscribed the museum's name.

The Linzi Museum of Chinese Ancient Cars consists of two parts: the Exhibition Hall of Ancient Cars and the Exhibition Hall of Martyred Cars and Horses in Spring and Autumn Period. The exhibition hall is part of the traditional wooden structure dump style. It covers an area of 2300 square meters and is divided into two floors. The ancient cars are displayed in the order of the times. They display the restored models of ancient cars and unearthed copper, pottery cars and horses, as well as the ornaments of copper and bamboo carriages and horses in different periods of the Shang Dynasty, the Western Zhou Dynasty, the Spring and Autumn Period, the Warring States Period, Qin, Han Dynasty, the Northern and Southern Dynasties, Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties. At the same time, the palace carts and horses It systematically reflects the emergence, development, change, technological improvement of ancient Chinese cars and the status and role of horses and chariots in life and war. The exhibition hall of martyrs and horses located underground may be a coincidence of the vicissitudes of history. On the ground, the Jiqing Expressway runs across the East and west, and modern automobiles are speeding up and down. Underground, the ancient carriages and horses lie quietly 2600 years ago. Over thousands of years, the two are integrated, dynamic and static, forming a strong contrast, which makes people realize the unique artistic conception of the wheel of history.

In 2002, the museum raised 800,000 yuan by itself, and built an amusement park of 1500 square meters, which integrates leisure, entertainment, catering, folk exhibition and sports and fitness. It includes 15 groups of participatory entertainment facilities, such as Bird Language Forest, Cock Fighting, Sheep Fighting, Horse Running, Archery and Swing, Ring and Bed Jumping.
