Abstract


Along with the development of the Internet of Things and its related technologies, various industries, especially the service industry, have evolved from being «informatized» to being «intelligentized». This trend has also brought changes to various services offered by museums in Taiwan. Indeed, the Internet of Things, big data, artificial intelligence, and robotics have brought museums the opportunity to develop innovative exhibitions, enhance their educational function, and realize their vision statements. In relation to the Intelligent Museum Project, the National Science and Technology Museum launched the Special Exhibition on Exploring the Internet of Things. In the Exhibition, technology education is integrated with research on information and communications technology, as well as daily life, via an interactive narrative on information and communications technology that grows by leaps and bounds. «Online to Onsite visitor behavior system» was also constructed to capture visitors’ behavior in a real-time manner, and to create the Internet of Things within the Special Exhibition of the Internet of Things. The challenges include: determining how to present the «virtual» internet world in the «real» Exhibition, conversion of the content of interactive exhibits, selection of narrative approaches, and construction of a database system. When the Special Exhibition was launched in the National Science and Technology Museum during 2016-2017, the data were collected via the system constructed in the exhibition hall. An analysis of 14,960 entries of visitors’ behavior found that 98.4% of visitors were highly satisfied with the Exhibition; average time on site per visitor was 92 minutes; general performance of visitors’ behavior was 22.35 points, which falls into «high-level participation»; there was no «low-level participation». Judging from the comments and feedback provided by visitors, most of them are positive about the Exhibition. As such, it can be said that the educational function of the Special Exhibition on Exploring the Internet of Things has been realized.
