The one-day public exhibition of the Palace Museum's "Hospital for Cultural Relics" in Beijing on Saturday is fully booked.
The special exhibit coincides with China's Cultural and Natural Heritage Day, according to the museum's website.
Visitors, who had to reserve free tickets on the museum's website, will be able to watch the "cultural relic doctors" attend to and repair museum collections in the Forbidden City, including calligraphy, paintings, bronze ware and clocks, with 15 narrators guiding them, Beijing Evening News reported on Wednesday.
Only 40 visitors 16 years and above were allowed to reserve a ticket before Friday.
Visitors are not allowed to take photos or videos nor are they allowed to bring large bags and objects, the website said .
This is the first time the Palace Museum has allowed the public to see the "relic hospital." The museum plans to open the "hospital" for an extended period of time depending on the results of this trial run.
Established on December 29, 2016, the "relic hospital" is located on the west side of the Forbidden City. It is China's largest restored relic and protection center.
