The museum is not only a place for collecting, displaying historical artifacts, but it also reflects current social issues through its exhibits.
At the museum, the educational programme with the theme “Find out social issues through permanent exhibitions or temporary exhibitions” will provide a good possibility for students to enhance their awareness, and it also shows their opinions and voices related to each social issue. From students’ opinions, we sometimes know that we must listen to the kids more and understand more about their thoughts on that issue.
The educational programme: “Find out social issues through permanent exhibitions or temporary exhibitions” is designed to help students develop their thought processes and debating skills when they face issues and improve their skills in teamwork and presentation.
