The museum is the center of cultural heritage in north-eastern Thailand, emphasising artifacts from the lower Isan, such as Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum, Buri Ran, Surin and Si Sa Ket. The interesting art objects belong to Dvaravati and Khmer art styles. The Dvaravati style can be seen on Sima or boundary stone while the Khmer style is evident in stone carving of lintels, pendiments, pillars and antefixs. The master piece of the museum collection is the stone statue of King Jayavarman VII of Angkor Thom which was found in Prang Bhramadhatta, Prasat Phimai.
