Today's society advocates ' Never too late to learn'. Because of the technological evolution improves every day and the rapid changes in the environment, training the public to have scientific literacy has become the educational policy orientation of many countries. School education is only the tip of the iceberg for people to learn in their lifetime. Most of the learning takes place in informal education. Among them, museum is an important continuing education space, and its 'loan box' can break the geographical restrictions and increase the opportunities for education promotion. Based on the characteristics of the loan box, this study combines a variety of learning theories, using the mutualism relationship between Figs and the Fig wasp as the learning theme, and developing the loan box of 'Life History of Fig Wasps'. During the period from January 29th to February 28th, 2019, the loan box was actually displayed in Da-Aan Forest Park to invite people to participate in experiential learning. Before and after the operation of the loan box, the relevant pre-test and post-test questionnaires designed by the researcher were filled out. The study used the questionnaire and the loan box experiential observation to evaluate the people's learning interest and concept knowledge changes before and after experiencing the loan box. A total of 170 valid questionnaires were collected in this research activity. The results of the questionnaire analysis showed that the use of the loan box of the “Life History of Fig Wasps” significantly improved the learning interest and concept knowledge of the participating people, and the people’s experience of the loan box of the “Life History of Fig Wasps” is also highly satisfied. In the loan box experiential observation, the researchers also found that the general participation in the process of learning and experience, regardless of their age or personal background, produced good exploration and learning experience. This study finds that in the application of science education and lifelong learning, the loan box is a lively and effective learning experience, and is a pipeline suitable for the general public to generate learning behavior. In addition, because the content of the loan box is rich and diverse, it can respond to the learners of different groups and combine this technique with various learning themes to help implement science education and lifelong learning.
