I think choice 'b' will fit in as most acceptable.

I agree with Anglophile - it is talking about a specific museum, so "the" is best. There are many different "ancient traditional styles", so an is best there.

I think there is a strong case for (a) too.

The museum has 14 doors, which have been made in the ancient traditional style. (The ancient traditional style relating to that particular place).
