Knowing the experience of Ukraine. Museums in Taiwan are preparing to protect exhibits in case of Chinese invasion

The National Taiwan Palace Museum is concerned about increased pressure from China and is preparing to save its exhibits in in the event of a military invasion.

The Taiwan National Palace Museum, which houses one of the world's finest collections of Chinese relics, is concerned about increased pressure from Beijing. Here they intend to use the experience of Ukrainian museums in the event of an invasion by the People's Republic of China. CNN writes about it.

As journalists say, last week museum workers held their first-ever “wartime response exercise”, in which they learned how to evacuate valuable artifacts.

“The most important goal of these exercises is to tell our employees who should do what what should they do if war breaks out, how should they react,” explained museum director Wu Mi-cha.

According to him, the cultural institution is working together with the security service and law enforcement agencies, which helped develop a plan of action.

The security forces got involved after the director of the museum told the authorities that he could not think of an ideal place to store historical relics in the event of a military invasion.

The museum thought about saving its collection after the start of a full-scale war in Ukraine. At the same time, the director promised to develop a strategy for the evacuation of museum valuables. In particular, in the event of an evacuation, they intend to focus on saving about 90,000 of the most valuable relics from their collection of about 700,000 exhibits.

The museum does not disclose where the evacuated items will be stored and how they will be delivered there.

Three other institutions in Taiwan – National Taiwan Museum, National Museum Taiwan History and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts are also developing strategies to evacuate their collections.
