The University of Hong Kong Museum Journal No. 2

The true function of a museum is as an educator. Through its collections, it can preserve and organize information; through its exhibitions, lectures and research seminars, it can cultivate knowledge; and through its publications, it can record the fruits of research. The kind of education that a museum provides is more flexible than that provided in a school. Rather than being confined to the classroom, a museum is able to offer a diverse range of educational activities for its visitors. The function of museums is ambitious. The publication of this Museum Journal by the University Museum and Art Gallery, HKU is one of its many responsibilities. This volume is the second Museum Journal.
