A Tour of the National Palace Museum: History and Highlights

 Registration is closed for this event

Join the Center for an introductory tour of the National Palace Museum (NPM). Led by Margaret Lo, a seasoned NPM Docent and Guide, this tour will cover a brief history of the NPM and some highlights of the Museum's collections. We will start from the first floor, walk through the galleries of permanent exhibitions and end on the third floor. The tour will focus on about 25 pieces, including the Qianlong Emperor's Curio Boxes, the Tibetan Dragon Sūtra, the Buddhist Sculpture from Northern Wei Period, ceramics from the Song Dynasty, bronzes (food and wine vessels), jades, and some calligraphy and paintings. Tour participants will come away with a general understanding of how to appreciate the different materials used and their cultural significance. Entrance to the NPM and headset rental included. After the tour, plan some time to stay on and visit other areas of the Museum at your leisure.

Instructor: Margaret Lo
