Located in West Kowloon Cultural District, the Hong Kong Palace Museum is expected to open to the public in July. A total of 914 cultural treasures from the Palace Museum in Beijing will be on display at the opening exhibition of the museum. The museum covers an area of 13,000 square meters and the total construction area is about 30,000 square meters. It has seven floors and nine exhibition halls, with a total exhibition area of 7,800 square meters.

Echoing the Palace Museum in Beijing, the Hong Kong Palace Museum is decorated in beige and gold, saturated red and cool gray, while the interior is dominated by delicate colors and earth tones. At main positions, such as the main entrance of the museum and entrances of each gallery, vermilion is used, the same color as the walls of the Forbidden City in Beijing.
