Hall of Mental Cultivation (Yangxin Dian) was the living place of the Qing emperors and the political centre of the Qing dynasty. It is one of the mostly visited places in The Palace Museum, and it houses the most well-known and invaluable artefacts relating to the emperors Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong, etc.

As the Hall is closed for large-scale renovation, artefacts previously housed in the Hall will be selected for touring exhibition. The exhibition features over 200 representative exhibits of the Hall to show its political, historical and cultural importance in the history of the Qing dynasty.
