I called their office a day before I was scheduled to go to the city just to double check that all I needed to bring was a passport. Someone answered right away, they spoke English and confirmed that you don’t need a ticket number or anything, just your passport. I was able to get in no problem!
Keep in mind that right now there is an extra security check where you show a worker your Beijing health kit. I recommend setting up that mini app on wechat before coming to Beijing, all tourist spots and many shopping centers etc asked for the health kit before allowing entrance.

Very easy to use , also having booked tickets for Chinese New Years Eve we were advised it would be close and that we could choose another date or money back. We chose another date and time and although it was close to departure it all worked out . Got an audio tape at the FP and off we went.

We purchased the tickets online here and I had the barcode ready on my phone. When we went to enter, they entered our passport numbers into the machine and didn’t even need to see my ticket. It seems like it’s already in their system once purchased.

Anyway, it was a great experience but believe it when they say it’s crowded and the number one attraction in China.

The Palace museum was excellent, and the tickets with bar code worked very well.
There is not timed entry, so you can enter any time on the day you booked.
Need at least 3 hours to see the main sights, and then add more time for the smaller pavillons at the northern part of the Forbidden City.
Both the Clock and Treasure galleries worth visiting. Many other sights to see as well.
You enter from the southern gate, near the Metro station, but exit from the northern gate, which is a long walk to a metro station. Beware taxi touts.
