To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Palace Museum, the entire Forbidden City is full with activities and exhibitions. Recently, four more areas have been opened to visitors for the first time after necessary renovation.
The museum is constructed directly above the site of the former West Market of the Tang dynasty (618-907) capital Chang’an (modern Xi’an). The exhibition is entitled “Starting Point of the Silk Road – Merchant Spirits of Flourishing Age“. It is Chinas first archaeological on-site museum in private hands.
