New Palace Museum gallery of treasures to open before holidays
The Palace Museum, also known as the Forbidden City, served as China’s imperial palace from 1420 until 1911. It houses 1.86 million cultural relics. Only 400 of the most outstanding artifacts -- such as royal jewels, gold and silver articles, and jades -- have earned a place in the Treasure Gallery, which opened in the Palace of Peace and Longevity area in the Forbidden City in 1958.
