Over 900 Artworks to Be Showcased at HK Palace Museum on July 2

The Hong Kong Palace Museum, located in the district of West Kowloon, will exhibit more than 900 pieces of heritage art on its opening on Saturday, July 2.

The museum will feature artworks from the collection of the Beijing Palace Museum spanning the 5,000-year history of Chinese civilisation.

Visitors can expect to see historical paintings, bronze wares, embroideries, ancient sculptures, and first-class cultural relics. Many of them will be showcased in Hong Kong for the first time, while other gems have never been shown to the public before.

The art showcase in Hong Kong Palace Museum will be the largest Chinese cultural exhibition outside of the mainland since 1925.

The Hong Kong Palace Museum is a collaborative project between the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority and the Beijing Palace Museum, which is funded by the Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust.
