Very complete museum detailing Chinese culture and history

Gu Gong (The Palace Museum) is a very complete museum detailing Chinese culture and history. It is located within the Forbidden City, which was a royal site for both the Ming and Qing dynasties. There are over 700,000 relics from the Qing dynasty and over a million pieces of artwork.

Gu Gong (The Palace Museum) is China’s largest museum. Not only is it full of China’s treasures, the building itself is a fascinating piece of architecture. While it is not the same palace that the Ming emperor built, it is an impressive structure.
