The Forbidden City is turning 600 in 2020. In the past 6 centuries, she witnessed countless shifting of thrones, and recorded numerous joys and sorrows. Evidence of the stories are well kept in the Imperial Palace which later turned into the Palace Museum.

Palace Museum not only inherited magnificent buildings of the Forbidden City, but also gathered rich collections of the imperial family.

With rich collections representing the broad spectrum of 5,000 years of Chinese civilization and the 600 year history of the Forbidden City, the Palace Museum undoubtedly becomes the most iconic symbol of traditional Chinese culture.

Meanwhile, as one the most famous Asian metropolitan, Hong Kong appears in numerous films and TV series in the image of a financial center and cultural hub. It is a portrait of modern society, and plays an active roll in the merging of the oriental and the occidental cultures.


Hong Kong Palace Museum, which broke ground in May 2018, will be located in Hong Kong’s West Kowloon Cultural District. The HK$3.5 billion version of Beijing’s Palace Museum is scheduled to launch in June 2022.

The Palace Museum will be lending about 800 pieces of collections to HKPM, 20% of which are National treasures. Some of the objects are never exhibited out of the Forbidden City before. The exhibiting span is expected to be 1-2 years.


The establishment of Hong Kong Palace Museum marks the matrimony of traditional and modern culture. And will boost the traditional visual arts elements well and help display Chinese tradition and history.
