The digital exhibit at the Hall of Mental Cultivation, part of the Palace Museum’s modernization effort, was opened to the public in 2017, bringing cultural heritage to life with the use of virtual reality and artificial intelligence.

Built in 1536, the Hall of Mental Cultivation was the residence of the last eight Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) emperors, including China's last emperor Puyi.
