The Forbidden City: Inside the Court of China's Emperors: To September 1, 2014

The ROM’s latest exhibition explores the mysteriousForbidden City, which was constructed in the early 15th century and stood as the home of 24 emperors across two dynasties.

Constructed to house the emperor and his households, it was largely shut off from the rest of the world, with only the most trusted people allowed into its inner workings. This exhibition takes visitors through the Forbidden City, going as deep as the emperor’s personal study, one of theForbidden City’s most restricted areas. Using artifacts from thePalaceMuseuminBeijing, and several pieces from the ROM’s own collection, parts of theForbidden Cityare recreated to give visitors a glimpse of what life was like for some of the most powerful rulers in Chinese history.
