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.
Plan a Return Visit! Due to the fragile nature of some of the treasures on loan from The Palace Museum, these more sensitive objects; i.e, select textiles, paintings and paper objects, will be replaced with a brand-new rotation of similar treasures from The Palace Museum beginning early June. Mark your calendars to visit the exhibition again. Or, for best value, become a Member today and get free access to both rotations.
