Enjoying Taiwan’s Museums

Today’s Taiwan enjoys peace and prosperity. Thanks to the tireless effort of the government, the concept of cultural tourism has become popular in recent years and has gradually insinuated itself into the consciousness of the public. By providing us with interesting places with their diverse exhibition themes, museums have become important transmitters of culture where people may spend their leisure time amidst an atmosphere of culture. According to a 2009 survey of the nation’s museums, a total of 646 organizations qualify as museums. Of these, 221 organizations met the strict criteria demanded of museums. These museums are spread across the island of Taiwan and nearby islands, forming cultural communities of various sizes. The 2010 publication of this pamphlet, Enjoying Taiwan Museums, by the Chinese Association of Museums was made possible by the kindness of the Tourism Bureau, an affiliate of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, and Yingge Ceramics Museum. It is hoped that by reading this small booklet, people will be inspired to personally visit the great variety of museums to be found on Taiwan.

The Chinese Association of Museums (CAM) was founded in 1990 and is the most important professional society of museum specialists in Taiwan. At present, there are 96 member institutions, which include all the representative public and private museums and organizations. In addition there are another 242 individual members who are museum specialists. The goal of CAM is to become a communication platform for domestic museums, and continually improve the professional aspect of domestic museums through the efforts of board members, secretariat, and the Committee of Professionals. Moreover, CAM publishes Museum Newsletters and Journal of Museum and Culture (the first issue of which will be published in April 2011), conducts research related to museum issues commissioned by the government or academic organizations, provides training programs, professional services and consultation, as well as promotes exchange programs with other museums throughout the world.

Since the establishment of CAM, government support has enabled this organization to attend many international meetings where ideas have been exchanged with other museum organizations, specialists, and scholars from all over the world. For example, CAM participated in the 2004 ICOM (International Council of Museums) General Assembly in Seoul, and the 2007 Assembly in Vienna. We hosted the 2006 INTERCOM (International Committee on Management) conference and
meeting in Taipei, and attended the annual meeting held in 2007 and 2009 by AAM (American Association of Museums) in the United States. When attending these assemblies, we had the strong impression that our international friends were very curious about the development of Taiwan’s museums and desired to know more. We hope the publication of this pamphlet will provide interested individuals around the world with a better understanding of Taiwan’s museums and important informations concerning cultural tours. 57 museums located in various areas of Taiwan and outside islands have been specially selected and introduced with nearby tourist attractions for this very purpose. It is our belief that this pamphlet will be a helpful guide for exploring Taiwan’s museums.

Although the size of Taiwan is limited, it contains rich natural resources and a varied cultural landscape. Since Taiwan’s museums represent the essence of this richness, they are definitely worth an in-depth visit. We welcome you with all our hearts.
