Taiwan launches national museum expansion plan

TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwan's top museum, which houses one of the world's largest Chinese imperial art collections, has launched an expansion plan similar to France's Grand Louvre project, an official said on Sunday. The decade-long plan starting 2012, officially unveiled by President Ma Ying-jeou last week, will expand the Taipei National Palace Museum's exhibition area by five times.

The aim of the expansion is to turn it into a 'world class' museum, she added.
