The Palace Museum
The Palace Museum was established in 1925 and was based on the Forbidden City, the imperial palace in Ming and Qing dynasties. Through thick and thin in the past 5 centuries, now this once “forbidden city” is finally open to the public. With a great amount of extraordinary collections, the Palace Museum boasts for the world’s largest and the most complete wooden-structure building group. It is something that every Chinese can be proud of; moreover, it is also among the precious cultural heritages in the world. Covering an area of 780,000 m2 (more than 190 acres), the Palace Museum is now not only regarded as a huge storage for Ming and Qing jewelries, but also a live record of the Ming and Qing history. Therefore, the future of the palace depends greatly on its cultural development. Walking along the central axis, one can easily feel how prosperous and profound the Ming and Qing dynasties were, how life in the palace would be and how China had suffered from internal disorder and foreign invasions centuries ago from the abrupt buildings, exquisite decorations and elegant layout in the palaces as well as the yellow curtains rolled up in the Hall of Mental Cultivation and East?Warmth Chamber.
