Evergreen Maritime Museum opens in Taiwan
A new maritime museum created by Chang Yung-Fa, founder of Evergreen Group, will open Tuesday in Taipei.
The Evergreen Maritime Museum will be the largest maritime museum in Taiwan, encompassing 10,500 square meters. It will exhibit maritime artifacts and paintings collected by Chang from around the globe over 20 years, as well as nautical instruments that were utilized on Evergreen Line’s early containerships.
There will be permanent exhibits on the history of ships, modern ships, Taiwan’s maritime history, a gallery of paintings, and an interactive exhibit on navigation. There will also be a gallery for rotating exhibits, including items loaned by other museums.
The museum will occupy the first five floors of the Chang Yung-Fa Foundation building in central Taipei, and funds will be used to support its charitable works.
