Encountering 400 years of Tainan in a five-star hotel. NCKU collaborates with Tainan's Crystal Hotel to present the "17th Century Dutch-Occupied Fort Zeelandia and Town" exhibition from November 15th to November 10th, 2024. Apart from showcasing research findings on Fort Zeelandia and background studies on Chinese residents in the hotel, the exhibition also employs digital methods to present a digital model and VR virtual reality of Fort Zeelandia and the town. The integration of physical and virtual elements aims to deepen the public's understanding of Fort Zeelandia and the town 400 years ago, enrich historical imagination, and bring people closer to the history of Tainan.


NCKU has its foundation in Tainan and places great importance on connecting with the city. NCKU Vice President Yuh-Neu Chen, Assistant Vice President and Director of the NCKU Museum Ping-Sheng Wu, and Director of the Art CenterMin-Yuan Ma, among other humanities and social sciences-related executives, attended the opening ceremony. Deputy Research FellowCheng Weichung from the Institute of Taiwan History at Academia Sinica was also present. Representatives from the Ministry of Culture and Tainan City Cultural Affairs Bureau attended the event. Associate Professor En-Yu Huang from the Department of Architecture provided an on-site introduction to the VR representation of Fort Zeelandia and the town and guided the physical exhibition.


Deputy Vice President Yuh-Neu Chen expressed her gratitude in her speech, thanking Silks Place Tainan for collaborating with NCKU on organizing the exhibition. She mentioned that the five-star Silks Place Tainan is an excellent brand with travelers from around the world. Through this collaborative exhibition, it becomes more effective in showcasing the beauty and culture of Tainan to the world. In 1624, the Dutch established Fort Zeelandia and the town on a sandbar known as "Kun-shan." "Kun" refers to a large fish (whale), and Taiwan's culture gradually developed from the abdomen of the "Kun." Deputy Vice President Chen believes that visitors from around the world, after seeing this exhibition, will have a deeper appreciation for Taiwan.


Assistant Vice President and Director of the NCKU Museum Ping-Sheng Wu mentioned that the NCKU Museum has undergone extensive renovations since July of this year, and it is estimated to take two more years to complete. Through the collaboration between Crystal Hotel and the NCKU Museum for this exhibition, museum exhibits have been transplanted to the hotel. This allows more people, especially international travelers, the opportunity to systematically and comprehensively understand Taiwan from the past to the present.
