Palace Museum to Offer Half-Price Tickets & Other New Amenities

The Palace Museum in Beijing, also known as the Forbidden City, is ramping up its offerings this Fall. Starting next month and going for a trial period from September 12-14, visitors can purchase half-priced tickets to the Palace after 2pm. The discounted tickets will be just 30 yuan ($4.90). In addition, on the first Wednesday of each month from November 2014 through April 2015, teachers, college students, doctors, volunteers, police and military personnel will be able to visit free with an appointment. And in further efforts to make visitors’ experiences at the Palace Museum even more comfortable, hundreds of new seating options and improved bilingual signage and navigation marks will be added throughout the grounds. The Palace Museum is working to upgrade the facilities and amenities to improve the visitor experience, as well as in preparation for the former imperial palace’s 600th anniversary in 2020.
