China’s last emperors called it home; their subjects called it... the Forbidden City. Built and used as the official residence for China’s Emperors during the Ming (1368 – 1644) and Qing (1644 – 1911) Dynasties, the palatial city is still home to over 5,000 years of traditional Chinese art and artifacts. Organized by the Palace Museum and the ROM, this exhibition provides a chance to peak behind the walls and see what life was like for the last Emperors and their families within this vast, mysterious complex.
Specially trained ROM facilitators will lead your students' exploration of treasures from the Palace Museum’s collection, giving students insight into the Palace’s history, including 600 years of China’s rule governed from the Forbidden City as well as the tumultuous lives of the Emperors, their families, and those chosen few who lived their lives within the Palace walls. The Imperial Palace...once forbidden, its gates are now open to all.
