Conveniently located in downtown Taipei, the museum showcases the history of both Taiwan's and of global stock markets, as well as share certificates which are now a thing of the past after the country started promoting dematerialized securities in 2001, with an aim to spread financial literacy and make investing easy and painless for a first-timer.
The museum has audio and visual aids designed to help visitors get to know different types of financial products in a clear and understandable way, including bonds, beneficiary certificates, exchange traded funds (ETFs), futures, options and short-term transaction instruments.
The museum has received more than 20,000 visitors every year since its establishment in 2012, according to the Taiwan Depository & Clearing Corporation (TDCC), the institution which supervises the operation of the museum.
Earlier this year, the museum welcomed its first humanoid robot Pepper as a receptionist, and on Thursday, the museum announced it was adding new features to enrich the visitor experience including augmented reality and a 360° panoramic VR full view. With that, mobile website visitors can tour the museum anytime and anywhere with their mobile devices and museum visitors will be better served with such an individual virtual assistant.
