The exhibition has two parts: the exhibition of cultural relics and restored scenery.

This exhibition exhibits nearly 900 antiques that give a glimpse into how the Qing Imperial Family celebrated the Spring Festival.

The Palace Museum has lanterns, Fu characters and Spring Festival couplets decorating the Forbidden City, allowing tourists to enjoy the New Year custom of the Qing Imperial Family.

The exhibition has attracted large crowds to the Forbidden City. A girl takes a tour and stands in front of several Spring Festival couplets.

A jade ornament of Zhu Bajie, a character in Journey to the West, is on display. He is a pig which is the animal representing the year of 2019.
