Abstract

In order to preserve culture, a number of institutions are dedicated to educating the public about cultural history and traditions. Working with the Hong Kong Museum of History, we developed interactive activities to engage visitors in learning about the culture and history of Hong Kong. We created interactive hands-on and computer activities that utilized multiple learning styles to enhance learning about regional festivals and cultural heritage. These activities were implemented in an activity room of the Hong Kong Museum of History and evaluated using observational and survey studies. Our analyses showed that participants were attracted to, enjoyed, and learned from the interactive activities. Thus, we have utilized interactive learning to promote cultural heritage in Hong Kong.
