There are five separate roofs which correspond to the five rooms underneath. Three rooms are aligned along the central axis the entrance hall, central exhibition hall (reception hall), and sculpture room (large chamber). There are two rooms on the side wings a painting room, and another exhibition room. These models show the structure of each roof and how they combine. Each model, consisting of the central portion (three central rooms) and side wings (two rooms), is a one-tenth scale model.
