I visited the Forbidden City/Imperial Palace/Palace Museum as part of a tour. I appreciated the information the tour guide gave me about the architecture and history of the emperors. Without this information, walking through the palace would not have been very interesting. Everything looks the same and there is not enough information to explain what you are seeing.
