The Hong Kong Palace Museum will have a total of nine galleries. Five galleries will be for thematic exhibitions (on view for one year or longer), introducing aspects of the fascinating history and culture of the Palace Museum, with exceptional works from its collection, such as painting, calligraphy, the decorative arts, and rare books. These displays will tell enthralling stories about palace architecture, important figures and events, and the imperial collection from multiple perspectives. Two other thematic galleries will feature, respectively, art collections in Hong Kong and interactive experiences for families, students, and children. Two galleries will be devoted to special exhibitions organized by the museum or presented in partnership with other institutions. On view for three to six months, these exhibitions will explore significant intersections between China and the world in history, art, and culture.
