In 2016, it was displayed in the Capital Museum in Beijing.

"We had some adjustments on the repertoire of exhibits this time," Shan said. "It's to adapt to the structure of exhibition halls. Nevertheless, the choice of exhibits is largely dependent on the Hong Kong exhibition curators' ideas."

The exhibition at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum marks the first time these national treasures will be displayed outside Beijing.

The other exhibition, Longevity and Virtues: Birthday Celebrations of the Qing Emperors and Empress Dowagers, will kick off on July 1 in the Hong Kong Museum of History and run through Oct 9.

Once displayed in the Palace Museum in 2015, about 210 sets of relics are gathered again to reflect grand celebrations and the rituals from the Qing Dynasty.
