This is the guidebook to special exhibition Curio Boxes of Qianlong Emperor, in which 619 carefully selected artifacts are displayed in 15 curio boxes using the trending "unboxing" method. The exhibition features three themes, which are "Arrangement of Curios," "Joy Revealed from the Box," and "Display of Collected Treasures," exhibiting the content of curio boxes and introducing to visitors dazzling, all-inclusive antiques, fashionable items, and imported Japanese and Western merchandise. Additionally, the design of individual assorted boxes and showcases, must-see artifacts of this exhibition, allows visitors to witness the appearances of all artifacts once they have been properly stored in the curio boxes; and the ingenuity of royal family craftsmen as they designed storage spaces and hidden drawers using intricate placements. Such "discoveries" will bring visitors joy as they examine the curio boxes in amazement.
