Marina Wang's experience in Beijing
Forbidden City
The #ForbiddenCity is a massive palatial complex that housed the royal family during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911). Along with its stately #architecture, the Forbidden City Palace Museum boasts a collection of a million historical relics. Aspects of this gargantuan collection are housed in frequently changing exhibitions, but the permanent #Treasure Gallery is the most worthwhile stopover. The exhibition has the finest of household ornaments that would have adorned the royal family’s homes. Here, you can find #antiques such as gold enamelware laid with precious gems, the most opulent pieces of cloisonné, and #jewelry worn by empresses. #art #museum
