The diversity found within this information era prompts us to seek new knowledge, explain and solve problems from different sources. Knowledge societies, today, are more accessible and propose alternative ideas due to the way we solve the problems within education and learning facilitated by the emergence of contemporary museums and new media. Considering the impact of knowledge society and the emerging new media in people’s lives, the National Palace Museum in Taiwan makes ingenious changes through audience orientation, use of innovative technology, and application of new media services. This study analyzes and explores new interpretations of the artworks created by new media technologies, giving viewers a different aesthetic experience.
