Hong Kong: The Hong Kong Palace Museum (HKPM), located in the West Kowloon Cultural District of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), was open to the public on Sunday.

More than 900 treasures from the collection of the Palace Museum in Beijing are put on display on rotation at the opening exhibitions. Some of the pieces are being shown in Hong Kong for the first time, Xinhua news agency reported.

About 80 per cent of the around 140,000 tickets for the first four weeks of the opening exhibitions have already been sold.

Kevin Yeung, secretary for culture, sports and tourism of the HKSAR government, said the “HKPM will leverage Hong Kong’s own cultural edge to tell a good China story”.

General admission is priced at 50 Hong Kong dollars (about $6.37), while special exhibition tickets will be 120 Hong Kong dollars ($15.29).

The museum will be free to all on Wednesdays during the first year of opening, and 150,000 general admission tickets will be sponsored by corporates and other organisations for distribution to underprivileged groups, the museum said.
