About this place
國立故宮博物院的收藏,承襲自宋、元、明、清四朝宮中收藏,質量兼備;而它的發展則與近代中國社會變遷緊密相繫。中華民國建立13年後,將清朝退位的皇帝溥儀逐出紫禁城,開始清點宮中文物,並設立故宮博物院。民國14年10月10日,故宮博物院正式成立,從此歷代皇室之收藏、宮廷稀世之珍品,咸成華夏文化遺產,世世嬗遞,普世民眾皆可自由進出宮廷觀賞國家至寶。

Through out the day, the honour guard performs a choreographed guard change ceremony, which attracts loads of tourists.
