The functions of museums, according to Vice Minister of Culture Lee Lien-chuan (李連權), are to collect, research, and present exhibitions, but most significantly, to teach the public about humanities, art, and history. It also improves people's perceptions of beauty while providing museums and the pulse of society a deeper meaning. Furthermore, MOC hopes that by hosting this event, more people would be inspired to attend museums and learn new things.
