One of the main things to know about visiting the Forbidden City is that it's really straightforward and you can't miss much - there is really only one way through and you'd really have to go off course and ignore all instruction to miss this hall as it is enormous.
Outside there are a few windows open but at the main point there is a barrier and loads of people trying to take photos. If that is your thing dive in, no one will mind, if it is not your thing notice the many cool paintings, the impressive ceiling and columns. Also around the edge of the hall are many great statues and items from the imperial court.
