John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities and Cultural Heritage

The National Taiwan Museum in Taipei, established in 1908, is the oldest museum in Taiwan, with collections and programming related to the history of Taiwan, as well as anthropology, the earth sciences, zoology and botany. The Museum has developed an innovative program that trains international undergraduate and graduate students to give guided walking tours of the Museum’s collections and its historic buildings. Fang’s presentation gives an overview of this program, the National Taiwan Museum, and the state of the field of museum education in Taiwan today.
