8. Museums go on the cloud

This year, due to the coronavirus outbreak, many museums launched online tours that attracted many viewers.

On March 1, the Potala Palace, a landmark building in China's Tibet autonomous region, held a livestreaming tour for the first time in its over 1,300-year history. The tour received about 920,000 views, more than half of the total visits the palace receives a year.

On International Museum Day, museums in Beijing launched 94 events, including 50 "cloud exhibitions" and 15 livestreaming broadcasts covering seminars and "cloud tours".

Museums also have adopted popular tools and high-tech to enrich cloud-based event experiences.
