Where did I Leave My Footprints? Lin Xian-tang’s Journey to Europe
Lin Xian-tang (1881-1956), one of the figures in Traveling in Time Exhibition, was the leader of the Lin Family from Wufeng, Taichung. On May 15, 1927, he took the Fengshan Ferry from the Keelung Port with his two sons Pan-long and You-long starting to travel around in Europe and America. They spent 378 days visiting ten countries including the United Kingdom, the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Switzerland. In his diary, Lin Xian-tang wrote of what he had seen in his journey and hoped to broaden Taiwanese’s knowledge of Western culture. Now, let’s follow Lin’s steps by reading The Diary of Mr. Guan-yuan in 1927 to visit Europe!

2019 Academia Sinica Open House Day was Successfully Concluded!
2019-10-31

On the Open House Day, the Institute of Taiwan History selected trade letters related to Chinese herbal medicine from the significant archives: Tai-yi Hao Papers of Nagasaki (1889-1959). The exhibition, Kang, Tai, Yi, Shou—Taipei Commercial Letters Related to Chinese Herbal Medicine, featured correspondence between Tai-yi Hao and stores in Taipei. It presented the import process of the herbal medicine, such as American ginseng, edible bird's nest from Thailand and Vietnam, Korean ginseng, snow fungus, and Kanto velvet antler. The medicine had been displayed in shop windows in Dadaocheng in the colonial period, attracting customers to buy for recovering from or preventing illness.

Except for the profound exhibitions, our interactive activity was inviting the audience to play a computer game. In this game, the player would be a staff member of Tai-yi Hao. They had to arrange goods in the storehouse and identify the Suzhou codes in time to complete the challenges. Many audiences gave feedback on this game and said “it is intellectual and enjoyable.”
