This project intends to develop an effective educational media that is not only rich in cultural content but also feasible in the museum setting. We want to introduce the Mao-Kung Ting, one of the most valuable collections of the National Palace Museum, to the public in two key aspects—its aesthetic beauty as an antique bronze cauldron, and its historical significance of carrying the longest bronze inscriptions ever discovered among unearthed bronze in China, which has made it plays an important role in the evolution of Chinese characters.  Our mission is to develop an interactive installation that could help the audiences to understand this critical cultural heritage with ease. The major techniques that have been employed to facilitate this process include intuitive interactive interface, computer graphics animation, as well as an immersive environment with audio and video. Finally, two case studies were presented to show how the use of multimedia technology is helping to enhance visitors’ experience while the key challenges of the contemporary curatorial tasks are being discussed.
