The Forbidden City

For over 500 years, the gates of the world’s largest imperial palace were closed to all but the emperor, his family and servants. This stunning new exhibition invites you to cross the threshold to see over 200 national treasures from Beijing’s Palace Museum – some travelling outside China for the first time.

Compelling characters, engaging stories, and family adventure frame these extraordinary objects as you journey from the gates of the outer court, through the inner court and into the emperor’s private spaces, revealing the everyday lives of all those who paid a price to live inside.
