News: ( Source from Beijing Municipal Government ) To shift peak hour of the overwhelming crowds, the Palace Museum in Beijing will control the sale of tickets through 3 pilot programs beginning in mid-September:

1. Discounted tickets after 2pm from Sept.12 – Sept.14;

2. Annual tickets and free tickets for certain groups of people.

The 300 yuan annual tickets allow visitors to enter the Palace Museum 10 time a calendar year. Special exhibition halls are not included. Chinese students and seniors are eligible for half-price discounts.

Free admission: for teacher on Nov.5; medical practitioners on Dec.3; volunteer workers on Jan.7; soldiers on Feb.4; policemen on Mar.4 and college students on Apr.1.

3. Considering that “rush hour” at the Palace Museum is from 10am to 1am, the museum will try out new pricing: 30 yuan ( $4.88 ) after 2pm from Sept.12 – Sept.14. However, the ticket will not cover entry to specialized exhibitions.
