Tong-an ships, traditional sea vessels that emerged in the middle of the Qing Dynasty, were named after their manufacturing site located in Tong-an County of Fujian Province. Originally used as merchant ships, Tong-an ships were further leveraged by the imperial navy and pirates in the late Qianlong Dynasty. Prior to the introduction of the steamboat, Tong-an ships were the most representative sailboats in ancient China. Historically speaking, Tong-an ships not only stimulated trade and interaction among the East Asia region, they also facilitated immigration and economic development in Taiwan.

"Brave the Wind and the Waves"(Tong-an Ship Board Game Workshop Showcase and the National Palace Museum New Media Art Exhibition) consists of three sections: Mini-Naval Battle, Rebuilding the Tong-an Ships, and Experiencing the Voyage. The exhibition aims to provide various perspectives to comprehending the historical, military and cultural aspects of the Tong-an ships.
