TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The Taiwan Stock Museum hopped on the bandwagon to adopt
a new artificial intelligence robot to welcome and entertain visitors after its renovation in early 2017.
In 1887 during the Qing Dynasty, Taiwan Provincial Governor Liu Ming-chuan issued the first batch of physical stock certificates in Taiwan to raise money to build a railway connecting Taipei and Hsinchu. As time went by, the papers were terribly faded and can only be imagined through a couple of old photos in the museum.
Conveniently located in downtown Taipei next to the MRT Zhongshan Junior High School Station, the museum space is divided into five areas from the history of the global stock market and the development of Taiwan’s stock market and of its derivatives market to a room for the storage of share certificates which is now a thing of the past.
