As part of its public service activities to promote appreciation for music culture, the Min-On Music Museum periodically holds cultural lectures, workshops and concerts held as a goodwill tribute to a selected country and its musical traditions. Since it was officially registered as an authenticated music museum in 2003, some twenty cultural lectures and a number of workshops have been held, mainly in the Min-On Culture Center but also sometimes in public places.

In one example of a cultural lecture from 2006, Wu Jiang, President of the China National Peking Opera Company, gave a talk entitled The World of Peking Opera on the occasion of the company’s Japan tour. Explaining the enormous influence that Peking Opera has had on the Chinese people, he characterized it as an encyclopedia for understanding all facets of China’s history and culture. In addition to the lecture, participants were treated to a performance by the Peking Opera actors. In another example, Japanese conductor Tadaaki Otaka delivered a lecture entitled Classical Music from the Standpoint of a Conductor. The talk focused on the fascination of classical music, and was followed by a lively question-and-answer session. Through the lecture, the approximately 250 attendees deepened their understanding of and appreciation for classical music.
