Evergreen to open Taiwan's largest maritime museum

Evergreen to open Taiwan's largest maritime museum

Taipei: Container giant Evergreen is to open the country's largest maritime museum here in the capital of Taiwan tomorrow. The 10,500 sq mtr Evergreen Maritime Museum (EMM), which is administrated by the Chang Yung-Fa Foundation (CYFF), is expected to provide an educational and entertaining experience and serve as a bridge between the public and maritime history, art and technology.

The museum will exhibit a great quantity of precious maritime artifacts and paintings collected by Evergreen Group Chairman Dr Chang from around the globe over a period of 20 years as well as nautical instruments that once were carried by Evergreen's older container ships.

The museum, which is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 09.00 to 17.00, will boast five permanent exhibitions as well as a section for special exhibitions. The revenue from admission fees and souvenir sales is to be donated to the CYFF to support its charitable works.  [06/10/08]
