The Palace Museum in Beijing announced on Monday that it will hold two major exhibitions in Hong Kong next year to celebrate 20th anniversary of the region's return to China.

The World Rejoices as One: Celebrating Imperial Birthday in the Qing Dynasty, which was on display in the Palace Museum from October 2015 to January 2016, is about celebration items and gifts from former royal families.

The other show will be about the Hall of Mental Cultivation, the residence of the last eight emperors of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). The hall in the palace is closed for restoration until 2020; the exhibits in Hong Kong will include cultural relics that were housed there.

The two exhibitions are expected to open in Hong Kong sometime in late June.

The museum has also signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Hong Kong-based Phoenix Television. That will include a series of fine-art exhibitions, forums and cultural creativity development with new technology.
