The National Taiwan Museum is the oldest museum in Taiwan, a center of natural history and anthropology since 1908. After a major renovation, the 109-year-old museum reopened in November, the latest step in a plan designed to update the museum for the 2020’s. To mark its grand reopening, the museum has dedicated a new permanent exhibition, “Discovering Taiwan”. This exhibit looks back to the earliest days of inquiry into Taiwan’s peoples and its environment, and it traces the stories of the people who helped build the museum’s collection. But the new exhibit is as much about the museum’s relevance to the present and the future as it is about history. Here to tell us more is assistant museum researcher Li Tzu-ning.
