9 pieces of chamber tombs which were found at Pangyo-dong, Bundang-gu and assumed to be of the late 4 or 5th century are exhibited in the basement floor of the museum. Hair adornments, bracelets and rings made of gold, silver and gilt bronze and various earthenware which were also found together with tombs are exhibited here. Those tombs and relics are evidences of cultural exchanges in Northeast Asia during the period of the Three States and are precious materials with which researchers can explore the culture of Hanseong Baekje and its influences. 2 of the 9 tombs are preserved on-site at the back of the museum and the rest 7 tombs are exhibited in the museum.

2 chamber tombs of the Goguryeo era which are exhibited along with those Goryeo relics were found in Sampyeongdong and then moved and restored. The ceilings of those tombs are good examples of the typical narrowing construction patterns of the Goguryeo era and therefore serve as evidences that Goguryeo actively expanded its territory during this period. Such ancient tombs of the Three States show the course of the history in the period of the Three States leading to Goguryeo’s expansion to the south and Baekje’s relocation of its capital to Woongjin (Gongju).
