This is a review of the clock gallery only. As other reviewers have noted, this requires a separate ticket from the nearby treasure gallery.

This is worthwhile, but (on a weekend) it was extremely crowded. It is not large, but according to the website 82 clocks are on display. They are extremely ornate, and the workmanship involved is quite stunning.

If you can be there on a weekday, perhaps it would be less crowded and more enjoyable.

If you intend to visit the Forbidden City, I recommend you to purchase tickets to the Clock Gallery and Treasure Gallery. Both require separate tickets. The treasure gallery is housed inside the Palace of Tranquil Longevity, at the eastern side of the Forbidden City. The nine dragon wall is located here. One can have a glimpse of some of the exquisite items worn by the Qing emperors and the royal families such as jade and gold jewelry, accessories etc. As I visited in end Sep, off shoulder season, it was rather quiet and I have no crowd issues.

We had to queue for about 20 minutes

It was worth it, but the hoards who block sight of the display cabinets taking picture after picture do not make for a pleasant experience.

But the treasures are good

For anyone with an interest in clocks this is a place to go. Exquisite items created by wonderful craftsmen as gifts for the emperor given by visiting heads of state. Its a 'must go to' place

Unfortunately with most top rated sites in China today, no matter which day you visit, it is bound to be super crowded. That was the case when we visited and at the end, we were frustrated by first the long queue then the others who cut queues just to take pictures of the display. else they are rather impressive.

There is a small entrance fee but worth seeing the treasures and antiques. The nine dragon wall is located here.
Clock and Watch Gallery contains all the beautiful and ornate clocks given as gifts from other countries.
Treasure Gallery has exquisite items of the emperors and their families such as jade and gold jewelry, silver dinnerware, pictures and other valuable artifacts. The jewelry area is small and jam-packed.
It is worth the extra fee to see these treasures.

You can spend hours looking around at all the exhibits in the palace museum so allow a few days to do so as it becomes tiring after a few hours.

Extra 10 yuan at the entrance. Beautiful jewels and ornaments. Amazing precious stones. Well worth it.

This area had some beautiful items but were very hard to see. The Chinese people are very rude and have no sense of manners or anyone else around them. You will stand in line to see the display and take a picture and they will literally come up under your elbows and get in front of you. They don't do this in the airport, so I know they know better. Maybe the Palace should design some way to rope these displays off and make people go down in a line. It is very easy to get crushed at these tourist areas.
