In the exhibition hall on the second floor, most of the konghou exhibits are from the collection of or recovered by Huang Yiqi and Xu Bilan. Currently, they are working on the making of ancient vertical konghou, horizontal konghou, phoenix-headed konghou and unearthed konghou based on murals and semi-physical objects. Xu is also conducting research on konghou restoration and performance.

The third floor is for the study and exchange of konghou culture, where Xu Bilan share and exchange ideas with other konghou lovers. A research and study course on konghou culture is also under preparation.
