National Museum of History set to reopen Feb. 21

The National Museum of History is set to reopen its doors to the public Feb. 21 following over five years of renovation, highlighting the government's dedication to historical preservation, the Ministry of Culture said.

A launch ceremony marking the milestone was jointly hosted by NMH Director Wang Chang-hua and MOC Minister Shih Che earlier this month. Prominent academics and experts attended the event.

According to the MOC, the facility will feature a new permanent exhibition entitled “Discover Our Connections, Right Here” that will showcase 110 artifacts reflecting social and cultural changes Taiwan and the museum have undergone over the years.

Speaking at the launch, Shih emphasized that NMH was the first museum established after the government relocated from China to Taiwan in 1949. As such, the facility itself represents the evolution of Taiwan’s history, he said.

Wang hailed NMH as a major repository of modern and contemporary art and said the new exhibit will hold one of the country’s largest collections of national treasures and important cultural items, vowing to make the museum a place where Taiwan’s cultural and social history is accessible to all.
