To foreigners, whose interpretation of Chinese culture is inextricably interwoven with their innate cultural gene, what do they think about all the innovative endeavors the Palace Museum has taken? And in an internet era when all the traditional establishments are struggling to address the concerns brought about by modernity, how should the museums which used to function as repositories of historical objects transform themselves to be more accessible to the general public?
