National Palace Museum unveils ‘night feast’ tour

STAFF WRITER, WITH CNA

The National Palace Museum will launch a new “night feast” program utilizing its cultural resources to promote creative industries in line with government policy.

Chu Hui-liang (朱惠良), deputy director of the museum’s education promotion department, said on Saturday that the program would be introduced on a trial basis over the next six months and would target corporate clients and government agencies, offering them the opportunity to rent the entire venue at NT$220,000 per night for an all-inclusive “night feast.”

Sessions will be offered once a month and will accommodate groups of up to 100 guests with a one-hour tour of the museum’s masterpieces with in-depth commentary by experts, she said. After the tour, guests will be offered a wide variety of teas and desserts at the museum’s teahouse.

The highlight of the evening will be a “night feast” at which three meals will be served, she said. These will feature health foods, Chinese herbal medicine and seafood. After the feast, a one-hour concert and dance will bring the night to a close, Chu said.
