The Palace Museum opens a series of the grand exhibitions to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City now houses more than 1.8 million cultural treasures. It received more than 17 million visitors last year.
In the meantime, the Palace Museum plans to open more areas to people, while several palaces will reopen after years of restoration, presenting the royal paraphernalia in original patterns in ancient time. The exhibits cover a wide range of categories, including paintings, calligraphy, bronzes, ceramics, jades, ancient books, historical documents, timepieces, as well as other national cultural heritage and the artifacts from foreign countries.
The Palace Museum will present more innovative exhibitions and various events from September, bringing high-quality and diverse cultural vibes into every corner of the time-honored buildings. Through the series of exhibitions, people will have a taste of the endless charm embodied in the 600-year-old Forbidden City and the 95-year-old Palace Museum.
