Located in the Forbidden City in the area of the Palace of Tranquil Longevity (Ningshou gong), the Treasure Gallery has been one of the Palace Museum's most important permanent exhibitions since the gallery’s opening in 1958. Known as the first phase of renovations, the project included the south and north galleries in the eastern corridor halls. Having undergone renovations, the gallery has once again been upgraded.

The Treasure Gallery is a series of exhibition spaces in the northeast part of the Forbidden City in an area of the Museum known as the Palace of Tranquil Longevity Sector. It consists of six gallery rooms displaying pieces from the imperial collection and extant accouterments for palace life. All of these exquisite items are made of precious materials, such as jade, jadeite, gold, silver, pearls, and other precious and semi-precious stones.

Occupying a large area in the northeast of the Forbidden City, the Palace of Tranquil Longevity Sector was originally designed as the private paradise of the Qianlong Emperor (1736-1795) for after his retirement from imperial duties. The courts in this sector contain expansive halls, intimate residential chambers, a grand theatre, a scenic garden, and solemn Buddhist shrines. The overall layout of this rectangular sector is modeled after the Forbidden City. This relatively secluded and independent area creates the perfect environment for displaying the treasures of dynastic glory.
