Entering the Forbidden City: Architecture, Collection, and Heritage

Hong Kong Palace Museum Gallery 1

Overview

Description

Built on Beijing’s central axis, the position of the Forbidden City testifies to its significance to Chinese politics and culture. Reconstructed many times, it was during the Qing dynasty that the current layout of the Forbidden City emerged. During this time, China embraced diverse cultures, preserved ancient artefacts, commissioned new objects, and developed contacts with other parts of the world. Featuring over 100 significant works from the Palace Museum, this exhibition sheds light on the architecture and collections of the Museum, as well as the activities of the multi-cultural Qing court.
