This attraction is within the Antiquarium of the Palace Museum and therefor it is necessary to pay the additional entrance fee. However, the fee is well worth it because this is a lovely display on one of the walls. The colours and the modelling of the dragons is great and its a real privilege to be able to see it.

The Nine Dragon Screen is an additional cost on top of your entry ticket but definitely worth while. Tickets can be purchased at the Forbidden City entry gate or internally. It is far less crowded and gives you a break from the flag bearing tour groups. An English speaking self guided tour headphone sets will provide interesting information about the... More

The Forbidden City is packed with people and it is quite suffocating, especially in the August heat. For 10 yuan you get a nice breather from it all in this beautiful photogenic spot.

Visited last May. We visited the Forbidden City and paid the extra for this part of the tour. It is well worth the extra as it gets you out of the crowds - this is not crowded. You see the treasures of the palace:- ornaments, outfits, clocks, ceremonial items etc all in glass cases and the huge outdoor Nine Dragon... More

Quite impressive and colorful and I liked the narrative of the missing tile. It's also not as crowded in this courtyard as other areas of the Forbidden City.

You have to pay an extra 10 RMB to get into this section of the Forbidden City/ Palace Museum, but it is worth it to see the beautiful displays of ornate handiwork and treasure. This dragon screen is also neat!

You will have to pay extra to go to the Treasures Gallery which is where this is located, but it is worth it. The entire Gallery area is nice as it is less crowded, especially during the off season when we visited (Nov). Only 10RMB from Nov to Mar.
