       The National Museum of Natural Science (NMNS) is a world-class science museum and a major Taichung tourist attraction. Although most foreign visitors to the museum are impressed by the displays of Chinese history and culture in the Chinese Science Hall. However, because very little English information was available, these exhibits have been hard to understand. In an effort to make the museum more foreigner-friendly, five English-language brochures have just been printed that describe in detail the history and functions of the impressive clock tower located at the entrance to the Chinese Science Hall, as well as four of the hall's exhibit areas, including Chinese Science and Technology, The Taiwanese Aborigines/The Austronesian People, Chinese Medicine, and Chinese Spiritual Life. These brochures were compiled by Cheryl Robbins, a former NMNS English-language tour guide and former Compass Managing Editor, and are available at the museum's information desks free of charge. --By Cheryl Robbins
