Concerning the foreseeable soaring tourist numbers during this National Day holiday (from Oct. 1st to Oct. 7th), the Museum’s director, Dr. Shan Jixiang, advocates for the off-peak visiting.
The Palace Museum decides to formally adopt the south-north visiting system since 2 July 2011, after successful trials previously.
The Palace Museum Institute of Gugong Studies is committed to the exchange and integration of interdisciplinary subjects including literature, history, arts, science and technology, and museology.
Although the first day of the holiday falls on Monday, since it is part of the public holiday, the Museum will open all day instead of closing in the afternoon.
Based on the original Qing-dynasty (1644-1911) court painting set in the Museum's collection, the app capitalizes on years of research done by scholars and experts in a wide range of fields.
