This event has now passed.

For nearly 600 years, the emperors of the Ming and Qing Dynasties ruled China from behind the red walls of the Forbidden City. Theirs was a private world of palaces, gardens, courtyards, temples, and thrones. Join Beijingbyfoot as they retell one of the epic tales of Chinese history - the fall of the Ming Dynasty and the Manchu conquest. Go on a journey to learn what life must've been like for the men and women who lived and worked in the forbidden palace.
