Juming Museum to stay open at night during summer break

Taipei, July 1 (CNA) The Juming Museum in Taipei County's Jinshan will remain open every Saturday evening during the school break, giving city dwellers a place to freely embrace cool breezes and gaze at the stars in an open space this summer.
The museum, which normally is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., will hold a special night session from 6: 30 p.m. to 9: 30 p.m. every Saturday night from July 4 to Aug. 29.
The museum began extending its hours during the summer in 2004 and entertains visitors with a light and shadow show in Taichi Square that lets them play hide-and-seek with the gigantic Taichi figures surrounding the square.
The museum showcases the works of Taiwan's best-known sculptor, Ju Ming, on an open 10-hectare site. Most of the sculptures feature people from different walks of life, such as soldiers, ballet dancers, athletes, and scientists, using a vast array of materials.
Visitors can study the artworks and appreciate their beauty by touching them and feeling their texture.
