View the Treasures

Some of China's most precious national treasures are housed in the Palace Museum, the name given the Forbidden City in 1924. Over 200 of these objects have travelled to the ROM for this exhibition, and many have never before been seen outside of China. Exquisite gold, silver and jade objects, paintings, textiles and stunning imperial furnishings comprise the extraordinary collection on display.

See 50 new objects! This extensive object rotation, required to protect light-sensitive and fragile artifacts, includes several new textiles and paintings for visitors to experience.
